France in the Year 2000

First released in 1899, “France in the Year 2000” was a series of postcards that envisioned a future one hundred years ahead.  The designs and concepts are both naive and adorable, with some accurate predictions, and some very strange ideas, indeed. Artist Jean-Marc Côte was responsible for these fascinating designs. Here are a sampling.  Via My Modern Met:
