If you asked me my top five favorite things about working at RT, looking through our archives would definitely be up there. We have gigantic filing cabinets lining the office walls filled with photos, newspaper clippings and other gems from the 1980s and 90s that make up RT's history. As a younger person who doesn't necessarily remember much of these decades, it's so much fun seeing the party photos from RT Conventions of yore. If anything makes me want a time machine — and some big, poofy dresses.
Today I'm sharing some of my favorite RT Convention photos from years past, because keeping them locked in a filing cabinet should be a crime. And I've decided to make things extra fun: guess which decade each photo is from (either the 1980s, '90s or '00s) and win a bundle of books from your favorite genre! The photos are numbered to make things easier. Leave your guesses in the comments to enter, or e-mail them to me here with the subject "Convention Photos Giveaway" and your mailing address.
On to the photos!
