Many high-tech gadgets that existed in the 19th century and early 20th century have disappeared. They have been erased. Hidden away.
Today, all car brands try to sell us vehicles with all kinds of gadgets which are as old as the street, such as, for example, automatic parking, which was better and easier in 1930 than the technology offered today.
Who remembers the Citroën Déesse ? That was a car. Magnificent. Could rise almost half a meter with a simple push on a button, to overcome obstacles on the track. It was a treat for the eyes and also very comfortable. Today, only a few collectors are the lucky owners of a rare specimen.
So, you see that the infamous progress is not always better.
