Women of the Future 1902

Friday, March 15, 2013

Predicting the future is always a dangerous business!

Like the images of the future in one of my previous posts trying to show what the future would be like is always tricky.  The images below were created by postcard artist Albert Bergeret in 1902 for a set of playing cards entitled "Women of the Future".

As is typical of the male oriented business world there are some that are simply designed to attract "attention", like this lovely Lady General and her coy Lieutenant for example.

The Doctor
 However many of the other images are striking in their business-like but elegant way, for example these images of professional women as envisioned by M. Bergeret. 
The Reporter
The Lawyer
The Sailor

There are more images collected at Rocking Fundas
Many of these are good models to use for the basis of some interesting Steampunk outfits I should think.

Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
