I stumbled across this blog several weeks ago. I’ve been meaning to pass it along to you: Paleo-Future, in which the author looks at how people envisioned the future (meaning today or thereabouts) from the past. Lots of illustrations plus speculation on the future organized into the decade of the source material.
Check out this hundred-year-old painting from Harry Grant Dart depicting a woman at the wheel of a flying machine.
Also posted this past week: future real estate depicted in 1953, General Motors’ 1962 car of the future, and a 1923 speculation that future work weeks would be a mere two hours in 2022.
Well worth bookmarking and visiting regularly.
