Boston's Time Capsule - Packaged in Copper for Preservation

Posted by Joe Spitz on Oct 20, 2014 9:56:00 AM

We can read history books and watch documentaries to help us understand our heritage, but every now and then something turns up which helps us comprehend what was important to a past culture. A 113-year-old time capsule was recently discovered in an outdoor statue on the property of Boston’s Old State House. People watching this story are anxious to know what is in the time capsule, so as to understand what was important to the Boston community in 1901. Personally, I want to know how well kept these time capsule contents appear. The articles were placed in a sealed copper box which was then stored inside the lion’s head statue displayed outdoors in an atmospheric climate with four distinct seasons and located on a turbulent ocean.  I see this as a magnificent study in copper as a packaging protector.

Copper and the Alchemy of Bronze

A few years ago, Liberty Packaging president Elaine was interviewed by the Copper Development Association, an organization dedicated to the copper metal and its uses. The Association took a particular interest in Corrosion Intercept. Corrosion Intercept, like all the Intercept Technology products, has a copper backbone bonded into the plastic packaging that acts as an atmospheric barrier, protecting the product inside from corrosion, static charges, and mildew. In that article, there is a link to a similar story regarding the importance of bronze, copper, and tin to man’s progress that I found fascinating.  Here are some excerpts.  I hope you enjoy.

The Beauty of Copper

Posted by Joe Spitz on Aug 4, 2011 6:59:00 AM

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in her book "This is America" of Main Street in Hingham, Massachusetts, “This is the most beautiful main street in America.”  Historical Hingham was settled in 1633 and as I was driving one of its first roads recently, I realized it would be hard to disagree with her assessment. Big, beautiful, well-manicured homes are recessed from the street; stone walls built by craftsman mold into the contours of the land; old-growth trees shade the neighborhood.
