Might not have done any good if they had been. I read a news report in the past month or so where a time capsule buried in 1957 - which included a Plymouth of that very year (and looks exactly like the one my dad still owned when I was learning to drive) - was opened & everything was pretty much trash. I guess water, or at least moisture, got in, cuz that Plymouth looked like it had been sitting in the scrap yard, rusting away all those years.Lemmy Caution wrote:I had an odd thought the other day --
I was wondering if any (now lost) films had been placed in time capsules and buried.
Also, as I understand it, most time capsules are effectively lost, as no one seems to remember where they were buried. Most of the ones that are opened are discovered by chance while excavation is going on for some new building project. So any lost films that might be in time capsules are still pretty much lost.
