There's a scifi story that is often brought up when discussing how poor people are at predicting the future. There's supposedly a scifi story from the 1890's-1910's era about a mystery set in the 21st century where the solution is that the milkman did it (just showing how unlikely people thought that milkmen would disappear.)

Does anyone know what story this is?

    The milkmen that I regularly pass on the way to work would doubtless despair of people's ability to know the present, let alone the future. (-: – JdeBP Nov 28 '17 at 1:21
