What UK was predicted to be like 100 years from 1888

Featured Posts

Apparently, in 1888 there was a competition in 'Answers Magazine' for people to submit their predictions of what England would be like in 1988

 

This won the competition: (Makes me feel quite odd)

Fascinating read. Spot on in some areas and wildly inaccurate in others. Thanks for posting :)

I had this idea from when I was young (a long time ago I know) that when the date ticked from 1999 to 2000 we'd all be wearing tin foil boiler suits... If the 'climate change' can be believed, maybe we're heading that way ?

I’m wearing my tin foil hat... so far it’s working.

Very interesting read thanks.
