Disney’s 1958 ideas for the Highway…

Here’s a little Disney vid from 1958 (discovered via a @ZelectricBug tweet)

Talk about “idealism” …keep in mind, the Interstate system of roads was started just two years earlier, and the original portion took 35 years to complete. Initial costs were underestimated, and required maintenance was very much more than expected.

How many of these ideas do you see in actual use today?

What ideas seem a bit far-fetched, or trendy for the times in which the animation was made?

What ideas would you like to see developed that haven’t been yet?

Comment!! 🙂
