Back to the Future: The 1950 that 1925 foresaw would have been nice

Aircraft landing fields on top of buildings. Spiral Escalators going 4 levels underground. Self-reliant building communities with schools and businesses intermixed with housing. Multiple levels of transportation streets. An exceptionally organized view of the future. All part of an architect’s vision of the future city in 25 years – back then! Published in Popular Science magazine monthly issue of August 1925 and entitled”How you may live and travel in the city of 1950″.

If only it ended up that way back then, makes you wonder what went wrong in the middle?!
