This futurist hit it on the nose!

This seems to be from a German newspaper of some sort circa 1930s (it originally appeared in black and white from what I can find online, yet this Flickr version is in color). All I can say is the artist (a futurist, obviously!) guessed right; we really ARE living in a time when we can see the person we’re having a ‘phone’ conversation with on a small screen … [source] See more by the same futurist artist here. (h/t to Darren Wershler for tipping me off to this via his Twitter feed.)
