The world in 2000 as predicted in 1910

The world in 2000 as predicted in 1910

Illustrations by French artist Villemard in 1910 of how he imagined the future to be in the year 2000. A fascinating mixture of accuracy and total misses. I wonder how accurate our predictions of life in 2100 will be.

Eh, #7 isn't a change. It's how the worst students and teachers alike have understood education for a few centuries now. It's no more prediction than a calendar.

I see Ryanair started early, no change in service and quality then. (No9) No 10, a prediction of road rage.
