A Whale Bus

The following is a series of futuristic pictures by Jean-Marc Côté and other artists issued in France in 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1910. It was, essentially, a 19th-century vision of what the year 2000 would look like.

Funny yet insightful. Haunting too. If anything, it’s a clear reminder that our ability to guess the future is just that: A complete guess.

Taming a whale though… I mean… amazing.
