Norman Bel Geddes: Futurama and the model railroader’s spirit writ large?

I came across this excellent article today about the various early projects (table-top football, table-top golf, The Nutshell Jockey Club, The War Game) the industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes undertook that lead up to his famous Futurama at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Some great stories here. Worth the read.
