I’ve always thought time capsules, the supposedly (see below link) sealed canisters of sundries that are meant to provoke revery and wonderment for future generations, not the questionable Apple backup devices, are a strange exercise.
I suppose for kids it’s a fun time, thinking about the future and the doe-eyed children who inhabit it and whatnot. Although I recall it being a stark realization that I’d either be long dead or so old I wouldn’t care.
I do like the comparison to Geraldo Rivera in Al Capone’s vault in the original story. Many of you will recall that infamous bust.
Anyway, funny story about time capsules that happens to take place in a place I’ve been, Soldiers and Sailors Hall.
Fun fact, Hannibal Lecter cage scenes from “Silence of the Lambs” take place in that hall, and I knew a guy who knew the guy who buffed that magnificent wood floor for the movie.
