What happened to the future?

These lovely postcards, produced by a German chocolate company in around 1900, show predictions of European life in the year 2000.

A gentle stroll across the water:

Moving footpaths:

Televised outside broadcasting:

Personal flying machines:

Weather control machine:

Combined steamship and railway locomotive:

Personal airships:

Summer holidays at the North Pole (not so farfetched, sadly!):

Police x-ray surveillance machine:

See more lovely cards here and here, along with many other wonderful predictions, at Paleo Future.
