1. "The Women of The Future," according to 1902 French trading cards | io9
In 1902, a French trading card manufacturer released this curious batch of playing cards depicting women and their futuristic careers as soldiers, lawyers, journalists, and cigarette-chomping students. But because these cards were designed to titillate, many of these outfits aren’t entirely practical — note the firefighter and general’s lack of sleeves above. In fact, much of the military regalia pictured wouldn’t be handy whatsoever in the battlefield.
