Postcards Depict ‘Futuristic’ Moscow

These are just…pure and kind of endearing. It’s absolutely amazing to see what artists in 1914 (before the War!) thought the future would look like. Just…interesting. It’s kind of like steampunk in a way–with how it’s alternative to what actually happened. And it certainly would be a type of situation like that, given how we’re progressed long past these types of looks. But still, it’s an interesting inspiration to see what people over 100 years ago thought our future would look like.
