It has come to my attention that Google scanned decades upon decades of Popular Science magazines from the 1870s to the 2000s and offered them in full (every single page) online as part of the Google Books service (Life Magazine, Popular Mechanics, Ebony, Men’s Health and more) . Full copies of Popular Science magazine, dating back to 1872, available for you to read online – free.
Popular Science, August 1988 – Plastic House, page 41.
Ancient stuff is neat. Time travel is possible with Google ;)
