Glimpse of the Past

In 1910 Cleveland Elementary School was built and as part of the celebration, a time capsule was buried at the building's cornerstone. On Wednesday it was opened to reveal a letter, official city and trade union documents and pictures, offering a peek into the past. The letter, written by members of the Excelsior Homestead Progressive Association, which was an "improvement club," had lines like "the city of San Francisco has just about recovered from the effects of the great earthquake and fire of 1906 and is now on a fair way to greater prosperity than ever."
