I love blasts from the past, especially when they are predicting a future that has already passed. Are you still with me? Check out this illustration from a 1925 issue of Popular Science that predicts how cities may look and function in 1950. I'm not sure how right they were about a 1950 city, but today's city is pretty darn close to this. The biggest difference is the below-ground car travel, which hasn't come to full fruition, but should have given the gridlock often experienced in Manhattan.
