This is fun and interesting. Click here to read an article from an issue of the Ladies Home Journal in the year 1900. The article is a prediction of what the author thought at that time would happen in the next 100 years, and it includes some predictions on transportation. For instance, the article predicts that there will be no street cars in big cities, trains will be able to go 150 miles, automobiles will be cheaper than horses, and everyone will be able to walk ten miles at a time. Very facinating stuff.

So what are your predictions for the next 100 years, since we’re on the topic? I’m still waiting for my personal jet pack, so I’m going to throw that out there. What other changes to transportation do you expect in the next century?
