Another View from 1900

From another blog (now on my blogroll), the wonderfully named Paleo-Future, are some postcards of the year 2000, put out by a German chocolate-maker around 1900.

Windsurfing seems more practical, if strenuous, than water-walking suspended from a balloon, but I like the marine unicycle in the first postcard, and the moving slidewalk in the second is quite elegant.

Also worth a tour is the Future Past website.
