These illustrations were made back in 1910 by French artist Villemard. They were his vision of what 90 years into the future would look like. Some things were way off for example he thought horses would become so rare that people would pay just to see them. His thoughts on our use of aviation had some accuracy. We put some current pictures that have some similarities beneath his. Enjoy.
