Time Capsule Found In East Falls

“At first, no one was sure what to make of the find. Inside a wall next to the 1929 cornerstone of the former Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania in East Falls was a narrow, lead box. It had been uncovered in April by construction workers installing utility lines in a Falls Center building being converted into Philadelphia University student housing. What was inside? One of the building’s owners, Jason E. Friedland, director of investments for Iron Stone Real Estate, recently laid out the venerable haul on a long table. Before him was a fascinating snapshot of life on June 11, 1930, the day the time capsule was sealed.” —Edward Colimore, Philly.com
