Summary/Abstract: The Victorian Age (1837 – 1901) is the famous period of British Queen Victoria’s rule. At the border between the two centuries, it is quite natural for the Victorian man to look at the future of mankind in 100 years. The reasons for this interest are determined by the changes in the economic and spiritual sphere. The successful continuation of the industrial revolution, especially in technology, the intensive infrastructure development, the construction of new railways, the active colonial expansion of England in Asia and Africa, stimulate such interest.The article discusses the Victorian vision of the world for the year 2000. A project under the title: “Life in 2000” was recorded on the occasion of celebrating the year 1900. It represents a series of 12 postcards produced by the leading Dutch producer of chocolate “Theodor Hildebrand and son” who, past the pastries, undertake the printing of images illustrating the man’s ideas about the type of world after 100 years. These ideas are extremely entertaining with their subject matter and because some of them have found a place in today’s modern day.
