The picture below is from a 1925 Popular Science Monthly Magazine

The idea came from Mr Corbet, his idea was How you may live and travel in the 1950's.

His suggestion was that we would live on four levels,
  • the top level for pedestrians the next level for slow moving motor traffic
  • the next fast moving motor traffic
  • the lowest for electric trains.
  • There would be great blocks of terraced skyscrapers half a mile high which would house offices schools homes and playground on successive levels while the roofs would be air craft landing fields, according to the architects plan
All this thought back in 1925 when you think of it some of what he suggested is what happens now, we have underground trains and skyscrapers with people making their own gardens.
