The National Library of France (BnF) has an amazing collection of postcards from 1910, depicting life in the year 2000. They are credited to the artist Villemard.

Translated, from the official site:
These vignettes, most likely to accompany food, appear grouped into boards of a dozen plays. They illustrate the way our grandparents imagined the year 2000! Inventions to improve daily life alongside those with a more scholarly or explorer, but curiously couture fashion is that of the Belle Epoque!

Villemard, 1910
Chromolithograph Paris, BNF, Estampes.
