Cool Victorian Postcards







These are great steampunk postcards from a time when anything seemed possible. No wonder those times are such fertile grounds for the imagination. What must it have been like to be just on the cusp of the industrial age when it was believed that science and invention could solve all of the ills of society. Every future was utopian as opposed to dystopian. The potential of all seemed limitless. Jules Verne obviously inspired these creations. Thanks to Io9 for the find.
