Statement by Mayor William Peduto On Historic Brashear Factory Time Capsule

PITTSBURGH, PA - “We are very pleased that the judge agreed to issue an emergency order today requiring that the historic Brashear time capsule be held in custody by the Heinz History Center.  The capsule is now safely in the hands of trained professionals, which was our ultimate goal.  

We remain hopeful that we can work out an amicable solution with our demolition contractor to ensure that the contents of the capsule can be enjoyed by generations of Pittsburghers, as a celebration of John Brashear's vast contribution to our city and to modern astronomy.”
