Back to the Future


Way back in around 1900 a series of cards was produced imagining what the women of the future would look like doing ‘a man’s work’. Interestingly enough, most jobs are done by woman these days. Here we have the fire-fighter; I don’t think that her bare arms would be of much use in a fire. I wonder what these men would have thought of her.

Oh gosh I don't know.
I think back then when there was a fire, all help would be appreciated.

The bare arms are bizarre! Have they been photoshopped to make them that skinny too? I can't imagine who the audience was supposed to be for these images.

A Lady's Life: I think that the postcards were made as a bit of fun.

Doris: Young men, I expect. She has got skinny arms, hasn't she?
