There are few things as fascinating as seeing what people in the past dreamed about the future.

"France in the Year 2000" is one example.

The first series of images were printed and enclosed in cigarette and cigar boxes around the time of the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris, according to the Public Domain Review, then later turned into postcards....

Read it at the Washington Post
