Visions of the Future..

1910 idea of Skype?

I can’t quite remember how I came across the How to be a Retronaut website but it is absolutely fabulous..  If you’ve got a moment check it out, this postcard comes from a French series circa 1910 that envisions the world of 2000.  Some of them are way beyond me – I have no idea what they were thinking.  Others are just really cool – I particularly liked the firemen with the bat wings.

Which ones do you like?

  1. Thanks for commenting on my oh-so-neglected blog. I had to check out this Retro site. When I came across an 1890’s photo of a Hawaiian surfer, I HAD to comment. Attractive men from whatever time period deserve a compliment!
