An Australian man renovating his home found a message in a bottle concealed between two walls.
Matt Streatfeild of Newcastle, New South Wales, said he found a glass milk bottle between two walls in his home during a recent renovation project. Inside was a note signed by four construction workers who built the walls decades earlier.
The note, dated April 5, 1974, lists the workers who completed the project and how they did it. Streatfeild said, “You always hear the legend of messages in a bottle, but you never think you’ll find one…”
He posted the pics on Facebook and was soon able to get in touch with one of the workers who said he couldn’t believe their “little memento” had actually been found.
