Moscow of the future

In 1914 chocolate factory called “Partnership Einem” released a series of candies under the name of “Moscow of the future”. Each box of chocolates contained one of 8 promotional postcards, depicting Moscow in 200-300 years. The annotation stated: “We mentally transport ourselves, to the extent of our strength and diversity of imagination, into mother Moscow in 200-300 years, and in our opinion, based on more or less the exact logical conclusions, we see following scenes: …huge buildings… lively, bustling shores of navigable Moscow river. Huge transport and cargo ships rush through deep waters… Long wagons of the Moscow metro fly out from under the streets…”
