Man Finds Note in a Bottle From 1974 Inside Wall of House—Tracks Down Worker Who Wrote It 50 Years Ago

For one man in New South Wales, Australia, contractors demolishing his wall revealed a time capsule—a glass bottle containing a note—in a wall cavity in his Newcastle home.

The home owner, Matt Streatfeild, was looking behind the plaster within the exposed bones of his house when he found the glass bottle and its contents, which apparently was left there some 50 years ago.
