Amazing stuff in Popular Science from years ago

Google has put every issue of Popular Science of the last century on line. I have started reading issues in the 20’s and it is amazing how many things there are still around.

Sometimes we forget how smart our predecessors were. Any dopers have favorites from the series? I plan on reading most of the issues.
