While working on the College Hall building at Montclair State University, BACNJ Local #4 members discovered a bottle with a message in it deep within the wall cavity.
It’s a little tough to read so we have translated it for you…
Montclair Heights, NJ
July 3rd 1907
This is to certify that this wall was built by two bricklayers from Newark, NJ
by the name of William Hanly and James Lennon members of Loc 3 of the B.M.I.U. of America and P W Lynch was also involved on the job.
