A time capsule opened Monday revealed a slice of Novato life 112 years ago.

The small copper box was found last Friday at a downtown Novato construction site and opened by an Oakland artwork preservationist.

The box had been buried in concrete beneath a Presbyterian church that in 1962 became Novato's first city hall.

The box contained a very wet but legible bible and some badly deteriorated newspapers.
