Visionary City

Here's William Robinson Leigh's "Visionary City" from 1908.

This one is a beautiful imagination of a city with no trees, impossibly high buildings with a perspective so high up that the ground can't be seen. I love the skyscraper canyons, and raised roadways, and the fact that the cars and street lighting are all of the time of the painting.

I found this, and the previous two images at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/3cities/axelrod.htm.
