Ooo, Swish! 1930s Newsreel Predicts the Futuristic Fashions of 2000 AD [Video]

Olden Lore

Oh, remember the olden days, you guys? Even before Y2K, when the year 2000 was barely even conceivable, and that by then, we’d have flying cars and lightsabers? This British newsreel from the 1930s (Pathetone Weekly) has a look at what the space-age style of the 21st century would look like — to people from the 1930s. That means flashlight-headpieces, no more skirts, cantilever heels (these practical things), and climate control belts! And remember to fill your futuristic fanny pack with “candies for cutie”!
