Celebrating the 49ers Win (In 1982)

With spirits running high before the Super Bowl, the Chronicle dug up a bunch of photos of the 1982 celebration.  While there's not a whole lot of burning buses or panicking authorities, there sure was a lot of dancing on cars and public consumption of alcohol:

Plus, there's some quality shots of Mission Street's then-active theater row.

Do check 'em out.

These photos can’t be legit; where are all the fat people?

A time when people both lived and worked here.

I’d *love* to take a peek into The Chron’s photo morgue. There’s 150 years worth of press photos in that archive full of gems like these.
