I suppose we’ve all wondered what life will be like in the future.
I myself am upset that we never got those personal jet packs we were promised back in the 1960s.
What we have above is a postcard from 1900 Germany, that postulates what the world of aviation will be like in the year 2000.
Keep in mind that aside from gliders, balloons, dirigibles and zeppelins, there was not yet one successful flight of a heavier-than-air machine.
I can only see one “motor” in the picture above, so perhaps the other two are flying via solar power…
Sadly, the fashion of 1900s Germany did not seem to progress in the imagination of the artist’s view of 2000.
Happy 2019! I will be back to more regularly scheduled articles shortly.
