ASHLAND, MA (WBZ-AM) -- Students these days are familiar with internet slangs like TBT for throwback Thursday and FBF for Flashback Fridays.
But students at David Mindess School got a different kind of throwback—locker number 130 revealed what life was like before the internet became a common part of everyday life.
Sean Thorp turned the locker into a time capsule of the year 1993, when he was a students there.
“It was remarkable how 25 years…how much has changed,” said Thorp.

Life back then was mostly pre-internet – pre computer technology.
Fast-forward to 2018 -- Thope now works in the high-tech industry and while 25 years is not a long time, he says what was most touching were the personal notes from family and friends.
And when they opened the capsule and there was a catalogue in it - he realizes most of the students didn't even know what that was as they are so us\ed to doing everything on a device.
“It had occurred to me that they have probably never seen a catalogue,” he said
The locker also contained copies of Sports Illustrated, comic books, and newspapers.
