Two builders were stunned to discover this battered wallet 35 years after it was lost with its contents perfectly preserved.

Richard Thompson, 26, and Tony Noi, 34, found the purse tucked inside a brick wall cavity while refurbishing a leisure centre in St Ives, Cambridgeshire.

Inside they found a gym membership card which expired on March 31, 1978, a driving licence for a Mr Richard Lane and a trade union membership.

Too bad there wasn't any money in it.  That really would of been a great find.

Seem's like someone stole it, took whatever money was in there, out, then hid it where it was found to get rid of the evidence...

Who says there was no money in it - them?

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Why wouldn't it be 'perfectly preserved?' It wasn't THAT long ago... My social security card is older than that and hasn't succumbed to the passage of time yet lol

Embrace the impossible.
