Like A Record, Baby

October 22, 2009

Eric Fisher — Futurist, Scanologist — brings us the Yerba Buena Lazy Susan, er, Yerba Buena Island Rotary plans from 1950. And you thought the S-curve was confusing?

1950 Yerba Buena Rotary Island

(It being the 50s, I don’t think I want to know what were they planning on using to lop off the top of the Yerba Buena Island.)

You want bridges?  I got you bridges.

Dear 1950s futurists, I want a bridge straight to Napa.  With BART.  Thanks.
