Inaccessible Heirlooms

A time capsule buried in the foundation of an Australian city hall in 1907 was supposed to have been dug up and opened last year. But the city council has refused to excavate to find it, to the disappointment of Margaret Horne.

Her grandfather John Norman, a former mayor of Maryborough, put mementos in it for his descendants to discover.

"I'm so disappointed and heartbroken the capsule still hasn't been dug up," Mrs Horne said.

"All through my childhood and even on his deathbed my father kept reminding me to be there in 2007 when the time capsule was opened. None of us know what's in it." [Link]
I think I know what's in it.
