The Misplaced Optimism Of 1950s Futurism

"The December 28, 1959 issue of Life magazine featured this illustration of life in 1975. It's over the top and cartoonish, of course, but it perfectly sums up all of the techno-optimism that was so prevalent in the late 1950s — the Golden Age of Futurism."
I'm still waiting for accurate weather forecasts and longer vacations.
