Thanks to new reforms in the Michigan Central Station (USA) some workers have discovered a glass bottle with a message inside of her. The packaging is still preserved with the production date: July 19, 1913.
As they have stated to Fox 2 the workers who found such a discovery, the bottle was placed upside down inside a wall. When they saw that the container contained a piece of paper, they wanted to take it out to see what it was about, but first they notified their superiors.
The relic was transferred with some experts who were able to unfold the paper under a ccorrect temperature and humidity to avoid future damage to such an old letter.
In it you can read: “Dan Hogan and Geo Smith of Chicago glued this roof together, July 1913“.
Two crew members turning the Detroit century-old Michigan Central Station into an innovation hub came across an old Stroh’s bottle with a message inside hidden behind a cornice high on a wall:
“Dan Hogan and Leo Smith stuck this greeting of Chicago July 1913.”

One of the workers, Lukas Nielsen, said he was very happy to have found this treasure: “Now we will be part of the history of the building. Good to see i know revitalize after being abandoned for so long. ”
The Central Station began its full operation in 1914, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places from the USA in 1975, but at the end of the 20th century it was abandoned. Until now, it has been acquired by Ford to give it a new life.
