Putting the fun back into, er, infrastructure

Putting the fun back into, er, infrastructure

From the why-didn’t-they-do-it department, the grain edit blog has a sweet collection of scans from Power Styling, a 1964 book setting out some ideas to improve the US electricity infrastructure. Pretty cool. And what did they do instead? That’s right, not much

According to its introduction, the book's designs were a response to the challenge of producing functional, cost-effective, safe and aesthetically pleasing power structures.  It's just a pity that little of it was based on technology that actually existed, then or now.
