Flying Bicycle (1919)


We read the predictions of futurist Mr. Bois in a September 26, 1909 New York Times article about the flying bicycles of the future. Just ten years later the September 23, 1919 Janesville Daily Gazette (Janesville, Wisconsin) ran this picture of a "flying bicycle." If only it worked.

A Hundred Years From Now. (New York Times, 1909)

"Mr. Bois believes that motor cars will in a hundred years be things of the past, and that a kind of flying bicycle will have been invented which will enable everybody to traverse the air at will, far from the earth. Pneumatic railways and flying cars and many other means of quick transit will be so developed that the question of time will enter but little into one's choice of a home."
