Pick of the week: Capsule uncovered at Te Matapihi Central Library

A time capsule buried on Victoria Street in 1994 has been dug up and removed from the Te Matapihi site for safe keeping until it can be returned – unopened – to the same spot for the next 70 years. The time capsule was buried on Friday 22 April 1994 to mark the end of the Wellington City Council’s year-long centenary celebrations. According to reports at the time from local paper City Voice, it contains letters from local school students written to a child in the future.
