My daughter Rachel has pointed her parents to Paleo-Future, a site offering “A look into the future that never was.” The woman in the above photograph is a woman of the future. She appeared in the play Railroads on Parade at the 1939 New York World’s Fair.
That half-circle, I finally realized, is part of her garb. Note the shadow that it casts on the train of the future.
Thank you, Rachel!
