London in 2010
A glimpse into the not-so-distant future
Congratulations to the NS contributor William Wiles for unearthing a fascinating copy of the Observer magazine from 1989. It imagines what the London of 2010 might look like: trams (check), the "Thatcher Museum of Commerce" at Bankside (almost -- except we call it Tate Modern) and "crystalline telecommunications spires" (er, not quite).
Read all about it on Will's own blog.
If you're still in a reflective mood after that, make sure to read through our own Review of the Decade, if you haven't done that already.
