The Discovery Channel Online offers a retrospective of the 1939 Worlds Fair, whose theme was The World of Tomorrow. The transportation section includes pictures of Futurama the General Motors exhibit, not the Matt Groening cartoon show.
The future is a catalog of stuff you can't buy yet
This site, maintained by a worlds fair enthusiast, offers everything you ever wanted to know about fairs, and then some. Contains links to 150 worlds fair sites, from Londons Great Exhibition of 1851 to Expo 2005 in Seto, Japan. Which brings us to ...
The site bills Expo 2005 as a laboratory for the technologies and lifestyles that will be needed for the new millennium. But unlike the 1939 event, where General Motors revealed its vision for a paved planet, the fair will show how people can live in harmony with the environment.
The ultimate guide to the futuristic cartoon show The Jetsons. How detailed is this site? It gives the Jetsons phone number (VENUS-1234) and asks the eternal question, If Georges car can fold up into a suitcase, why do they have parking lots all over the planet?
