The Future From the Past: How Earlier Generations Envisioned the Future

Gary Entz

1:30 pm
Pine Lake Town Hall
Host: Charlotte Schneider
Cell 715.499.0785

We’ll examine some of the predictions of the future as made over the course of the 20th century. The inspiration for this presentation is an early 1950s Readers Digest article that confidently predicted “The Super Smooth Highways of 1975.” We still don’t have them, but other predictions did pan out correctly. What predictions succeeded and which failed? It will be a visual look at what past predictors saw for the future.
