The National Library of France (BnF) has an amazing collection of prints from 1910 which depict life in the year 2000. They are credited to Villemard. There's speculation that they were included with "foodstuffs" of the era, much like the German postcards we looked at back in April.

I like the "'heating with radium'," one. Talk about, "whoops! My bad." They should show the same picture, but a few months later, where the people are glowing green.
