Workers fixing bridge find 80-year-old noteAugust 23, 2018
By The Associated Press
ALBANY — Construction workers repairing a central Indiana bridge discovered a note apparently left behind by the crew who built it 80 years ago.
Albany Town Marshal Shannon Henry says workers were using a jackhammer to break up concrete on Bridge 701 last week when a glass jar fell out.
The jar shattered but it contained a tattered slip of paper that reads “List of last crew working on this bridge,” and includes the names of 17 carpenters, cement finishers and others it says worked on the span during 1938 and 1939.
Henry calls it “a neat piece of history” that the town near Muncie plans to display.
The Star Press reports a photo of the note posted on Albany’s Facebook page asks relatives of the workers to submit photographs and memories.
