Time Capsule Gives Us A Sense of What It Was Like to Live A Century Ago.

Time capsules are awesome. I”ve always wanted to make one. You can communicate with people in the future (sort-of) by placing a bunch of your old junk in a box and burying it. But what”s even better than making time capsule? Finding one.

This is a pretty awesome look into the past and how people used to live. Check out a some of the stuff the people of 1913 wanted us to see!
