There is no feeling quite like it, when you realize you’ve discovering something that’s been entirely forgotten and frozen in time. Cabel is the co-founder of a Mac and iOs software company in Portland, Oregon called Panic– not your everyday time-capsule explorer! But one day, Cabel decided to take a lonesome wander down to the basement of the building that houses his company’s servers. What he found there juxtaposed alongside cutting-edge fiber-optic cable networks bursting through the walls is quite extraordinary…

Cabel asked around and found out that The Oregonian, Portland’s major daily newspaper founded in 1850 used to be printed in this basement. All the clippings, notices and scribbles on the wall no doubt belonged to the pressmen working there a century ago.
