The Today of Their Tomorrow

It's fun to look back to days of future past, to see what yesterday thought the today of their tomorrow would look like.

These couple of pages are from the yesterday of 1946, created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, showing, among other things, that everyone will own a set of portable jets to 'soar leisurely aloft at medium speeds'. I haven't been issued my set yet, so that probably won't be until the day after tomorrow, or maybe the tomorrow of the next month of the future. Though, this first page does hint at the achievement of Fed-Ex, getting fruits from farms to the desert within hours of being plucked.
