We Are Now Approaching The Futurama (1939)

The GM Futurama at the 1939 New York World's Fair takes to the World of Tomorrow... the amazing year 1960. Like anything from the era, it is entertainingly jingoistic and patriarchal, but provocative in its own way. One cannot help but ask the question of how much we have accomplished of this vision and whether or not it was as good a thing as people on the tail end of the Great Depression hoped it would be.
