Crowded Mid-Century Restaurant

Various pans on home movie footage inside a crowded tavern, circa 1950. As the camera finds them, some people hold up a glass in salute. Quick shots of various types: bleached blonde, fat man, fat woman, bratty kid, quiet couple, women in flowery dresses. Fascinating amateur documentation of people from all walks of life getting together.
