According to these illustrations, we should all have a personal flying machine by now. Take a step back in time and see what society was expecting life to be like by the year 2000. Each vintage image is a time capsule of thought and culture that flavors each prediction with Victorian fashion. Some of these are kind of accurate, such as the Undersea Tourist Boat and Moving Sidewalks, but others are pretty far fetched. Though I haven’t seen any cities covered by a huge glass roof just yet.
