In pictures: Here's what people in the 19th century imagined the 2000s to be like

French artists from the 19th century left behind a series of paintings titled 'France in the Year 2000', which draw an extraordinary picture of what they expected life in the 2000s to be like.

France in the Year 2000
Where do you think the world would be 100 years from now?
We (most probably) won't stick around to see it for ourselves. So, all we can do is imagine.
There maybe robots walking around the streets selling grocery and fetching 'kabad' (you know, scrap). There maybe flying trains and underwater cities.
Hey, maybe they'll be able to build a functioning time machine by then!
People who walked this earth a century ago also had imaginations about their future: the 2000s. And luckily, they left their exceptions on paper.
French artist Jean-Marc Cote and other painters from 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1910 have left behind a series of paintings titled 'France in the Year 2000', which draw an extraordinary picture of what they expected life in the 2000s to be like.
These paintings had made their first round in public around the time of the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris, tucked into cigarette and cigar boxes as paper cards. Later on, they were made into postcards.

The Public Domain Review
 writes that Jean-Marc Cote's cards were published much later by science-fiction author Isaac Asimov in 1986. Asimov published the cards with accompaning commentary in the book Futuredays: A Nineteenth Century Vision of the Year 2000.
Take a trip to the 'future past' with these pictures:

The artists seem to have had a lot of hope of household chores being made easier in the future. Well, we have achieved that quite a lot.

They also expected the police force and fire rescue teams to be at our windows at the time of need.

Apart from reflecting some highly technological advancements, the paintings show some bizarre imaginations of people having up-close interactions with the marine life.

The artists did get a lot of things right, like the farming machines, helicopters, "aerial battles", etc.
