Just a follow up on a previous post from October, A History of the Future. I started a thread on Historum.com (which by the way is a great forum for historical discussion) and everyone on there came up with some fantastic ideas, so do take a look! Thanks to Voskhod for directing me to this great blog, Paleofuture.com, which gives great examples of what the future was expected to be like during different decades. There are loads of fascinating images, even of things that did kind of come true, like the flying bus from c.1900. With the technology of the time, it’s great to see how they imagined it would be:
