Magic Highway USA

Once upon a time, people envisioned the future with bold optimism, and nobody presented  such visions of the future better than Disney. Check out this film from 1958 exploring the highways of the future. It is quite fascinating to consider which of the predictions have come true (even if not in the way imagined), and which have not.

The big thing they missed, of course, is traffic jams.

Tip o' the hat to Doc Parker for pointing this one out to me.
