Visions of the future…..

There is a wonderful online gallery of illustrations by Villemard from 1910 imagining what life would be like in the year 2000. It’s part of a larger exhibition titled Utopia: The Quest for the Ideal Society in the Western World.

Check it out here.

Thanks to the alert from Stephen’s Lighthouse.

    1. I love these images, some of them I have seen before. Isn’t it interesting though, that in each of them the people portrayed have been projected into the future?? The clothing and activities are very typical of the era – it’s the tools that are different. The next stage would be the evolution of the thinking around what and how things are done. Sound familiar???!
