Employees Discover 71-Year-Old Wallet In Theater
Kathleen Shipman 3/4/2016
When you find a wallet, the moral thing to do is look for its rightful owner. That is exactly what a group of workers did after discovering an old wallet in a theater. However, they never believed that they would actually have any success in their mission. After all, the wallet was 71-years-old!
It was during the renovation of the Talent Factory Theater in Iowa that the wallet was found - tucked underneath some floorboards. Upon inspection, it was determined that the wallet came from a completely different era. Inside there were faded photographs, a Boy Scout card, and even food rations from the war. The 1944 Identification card inside was handwritten with the name Clare McIntosh...
The employees of the theater wanted to see if they could track down Clare. Unfortunately though, the phone number on the card was a tad bit outdated (it was 8). But after some sleuth work, they did indeed find 85-year-old Clare - who was 15 at the time when he lost his wallet. It was amazing that they were able to find the rightful owner of the wallet after so many years!
