A few years ago Mike gathered up some wonderful drawings from France in 1900 and showed many transportation related ones under the title The Future Ain't What it Used to Be! I followed up on sister site MNN with It's 1900: What will the future be like? Now, the Retronaut has found big versions of these wonderful visions of the year 2000 produced by the German chocolate company Hildebrands, seen first on Matt Novak's Paleofuture way back when the pictures were small.

We will start with the obvious: we will all have our own flying machines. We are still waiting for this, along with flying cars.
