Back in 1888 Victorians were asked to predict Britain in 100 years – and it’s uncanny

Back in 1888 the good people of Answers magazine were challenged to predict what the world would like like in 100 years time.

Now obviously we’ve moved on a little bit beyond 1988 (and in some respects, we’ve moved quite a bit backwards as well).

But anyway, give or take a few extra decades or two, their answers – as unearthed by Dr Bob Nicholson – are occasionally very funny and often totally uncanny.
