Groups and individuals are invited to submit items for inclusion. The number of items will be restricted by the size of the time capsule (a 500 x 150mm cylinder).

  • documents;
  • memorabilia/badges/business cards etc…
  • passports/credit cards/key to a property (labelled with Glebe address) etc…
  • items that may not exist in 100 years time (no CD’s, memory sticks or IT material); and
