These illustrations were made by the French artist Villemard in 1910 to show his vision of what life in the year 2000 would be like. Some of them actually aren’t too far off. The technology isn’t necessarily right on but the concept of the kinds of things we would be able to do by now aren’t bad at all.

You can go here to see the rest of the illustrations, they’re all pretty interesting.
