Wall Find

A big thumbs up :smt023 to fellow Rusty Bunch'r "roosterman" for the lead on this one, I was contacted via email by a electrician saying he was on a renovation job of a school built in the sixties and they had found a couple of soda cans in a wall. He went on to say, one has been cut but the other is in pretty good condition.

After a couple emails back and forth it turns out that the electrician has recently started collecting Canadian steel beer cans and would be quite interested in trading.

Story goes that a construction worker was cutting horizontally across a wall with a sawzall and the "cut one" was laying on a cross brace wedged up against a door frame upright....
