Is the futre war-ship to be aeroplane or balloon?
Arist's prediction from 1907 of what a future war might look like, in this case aerial battle-ships - not, as it turns out, far from the reality just a decade after this picture was published in The Illustrated London News. The Illustrated London News artist suggests that engine-powered aircraft might be used rather than the dirigible balloons being developed at that time by the Germans and French. Date: 1907
