As in 1914, he imagined Moscow after 300 years?
In 1914, by request of confectionery factory "Einem" postcard series was released, in which an unknown artist depicted as, according to his ideas, will appear in Moscow XXII and XXIII centuries. Here are these wonderful cards with the author's signature to them. By the way, I fantasized a similar way at the time and in the West.
The winter is the same as with us 200 years ago. Snow as white and cold. Central Station Earth and air routes. Tens of thousands come and go, everything goes very quickly, consistently and conveniently. To services of passengers - earth and air. Who can move with the speed of telegrams.
The Kremlin also decorates the ancient white stone with gold domes is an enchanting sight. Immediately at the Moscow River bridge we see a huge new building trade companies, trusts, societies, syndicates, and so on. D. On the background of the sky gracefully gliding carriages hanging overhead road ...
clear night. Lubyanka Square. sky blue luminous draw a clear line of airplanes, airships and air road cars. From under the bridge area fly long carriages of the Moscow Metro, which only spoke with us in 1914. On the bridge over the Underground we see slim squad valiant Russian troops will retain its shape even with our times. In the blue air we see the commodity Einem airship, flying to Tula with a supply of chocolate to retailers.
The river Moscow
A lively, noisy side of the great navigable Moscow River. Transparency deep wave wide trading port incur huge transport and trade cruisers and multi-storey passenger ships. The entire fleet of the world - only shopping. The military was abolished after the peace treaty in the Hague. The bustling harbor seen Diverse costumes of all the peoples of shara, for the Moscow River had become the world's commercial port.
We transported mentally to Petrovsky Park. Alley expanded beyond recognition. Ancient renovated Petrovsky Palace, and it focuses Museum Petrine era. Everywhere beat, sparkling, wonderful fountains. Deprived of germs and dust, it is clean air penetrate airships and airplanes. Crowds of people in bright costumes XXIII century, enjoying marvelous nature in the same place where, happened, we walked, a great-great-great-grandparents.
Red Square. The noise of the wings of a tram, bicycle horns, sirens, cars, crackling motors, screaming audience. Minin and Pozharsky. airships shadows. In the center - a policeman with a sword. Timid pedestrians fleeing on Calvary. So it will be 200 years.
A beautiful clear winter 2259 year. Corner "old" merry Moscow, the ancient "Jar" still serves as a place of wide Muscovites fun, as was the case when we have more than 300 years ago. For convenience and pleasantness posts St. Petersburg highway completely transformed into crystal ice mirror, in which flying, gliding, graceful snowmobile. Immediately on small aerosalazkah dart traditional Sbitenschik and sellers of hot aerosaek. And in the XXIII century Moscow true to its traditions.
Theater Square. The pace of life has increased a hundred times. Everywhere lightning movement of the wheel, winged, propeller and other devices. It existed in 1846 Trade House Muir and Merliz now grown to fabulous proportions, and its main offices are connected to the aerial railways. From beneath the pavement fly numerous motors. Somewhere in the distance a fire. We see a car fire brigade, which in a moment will stop the disaster. On the fire rush to biplanes, monoplanes and a plurality of air prolotok.
Surprisingly, some fantasies come true authors. For example, building store "Children's World", was built much later - when the Soviet Union in 1957, looks almost the same and is in the same outlines Lubyanka Square correspond to the present, and the metro station "Lubyanka" is located in the same place where it was built much later, in 1935.
Can then the wildest dreamers imagine even part of what today we call the fruits of scientific and technological progress.
Can you imagine how life will change around at least 50 years?
