I actually wouldn't say they were wildly off. Sure, they've over exaggerated but a lot of those have actually been implemented in basic and advanced ways. I find the 1940's/50's predictions of the future to be much more hilarious, though. Not to mention they've spawned a glorious series of games. (Fallout & BioShock)

I love it. Very good find!


Its just a bummer he is not still alive to see today! I'll give it to him though. he did a pretty good job of predicting the future, but still keeping it within the bounderies of what seemed possible for the time, so it made it seem more believable to the people of that time. it was just simple entertainment though, much like the jetsons were. just something to get people going "I wonder what it will be like in..."

Now_then is quiet right

Those pictures are closer to reality than you could possibly imagine.

its all open to interpretation .. but i can think of many modern day examples that equate to these old pictures ..

Great find Op!! even if u dont know what u have actually stumbled upon.

True, but what is really crazy to think about is that there are people alive today that were alive back then. I've always thought about how amazing it must be to have witnessed the progression from the early 1900s to now. After all, it was [probably] the most rapid and most productive evolution of technology in our history.

thanks for such an interesting post! my favorite one is 'one for the road' lol that is hillarious! so french...

it seems like in every 19th-20th century depiction of the future they always thought we'd be flying around for everything. it's kind of disappointing that there aren't any flying cars or hermes shoes or...flying firemen.

These are quite beautiful and remind me of old World's Fair promotional posters and/or
notecards.

Namaste
