At School in the Year 2000

This image is from an exhibit of cards titled France in the Year 2000, at The Public Domain Review website. The artwork in this exhibit represents visions of what life would be like in 2000 from the vantage of the turn of the 20th Century (specifically 1899-1910).

Is the machine grinding the books an early vision of the internet?
