Yesterday's Tomorrow

The Futurama pavillion at the NY World's Fair of 1939, showing us what the world would look like in 1960. Obviously since the pavillion was conceived by General Motors, cars are the predominant new species on the planet Earth of 1960 and inner city pedestrian life has become a myth. All hail to the motorized!

    I just hope I don't die before I have my own personal little car/ plane or something like it, so I can fly (low, over the treetops).

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
