This is an image of a message that was found in a bottle from the The Marine Biological Association of the UK made available on Friday Aug. 21 2015. The century-old message in a bottle, possibly the oldest ever found, has finally reached its destination. Tossed into the North Sea sometime between 1904 and 1906, the bottle washed up on the beach in the German town of Amrum, and was found by a couple in April. Inside they found a postcard asking that it be sent to the Marine Biological Association of the U.K., which they did.
