Predictions on Modern America from 1900

Check this out: a magazine from the year 1900 makes predictions about technology and life in the year 2000. Some of it is surprisingly accurate, if in a slightly steampunk/Jules Verne kind of way. What caught my eye…

The American will be Taller.

Hot and Cold Air from Spigots.

Ready Cooked Meals will be Bought.

No Food will be Exposed.

Photographs will be Telegraphed.

Man Will See around the World.

Store Purchases by Tube. (by the series of tubes??)
