Time capsule reveals Prescott life in 1962 (see video)

http://www.prescottaz.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=103242

PRESCOTT - The voices from the past were loud and clear at the Elks Opera House Tuesday.

First, there was former Mayor Frank Tutt hoping that the contents of the 50-year-old time capsule
would give the audience "a first-hand recollection of life in Prescott in 1962."

Then came former City Attorney D.J. Christensen noting that "Prescott was synonymous with progress."

And finally came former City Manager Art Bunger telling the crowd how happy he was that his son Rick
had been chosen as one of the Centennians, the group of children appointed in 1962 to open a city
time capsule on Feb. 14, 2012, Arizona's 100th birthday.

Gadgets of the time included a General Electric transistor radio, a Norelco electric shaver,
a pink princess telephone, light bulbs, and a Porter-Cable electric drill.
