1939 clothes predictions for the year 2000

This is something a bit different! Back in 1939 British Pathe News made a film about what we would be wearing in the year 2000...some of the predictions are actually pretty close to reality - just love all of the allusions to space and spacemen, and the end with the man who is wearing his phone - pretty accurate!



Meanwhile tableware like these 1938 Poole Pottery cups and saucers were being designed and made, these tea sets have proved to be completely future-proof, with many people collecting it today, and many more not realising just how old these designs are as they feel so contemporary!
