Bradbury uses different modes of technology that do not exist in today's world to support the idea that the setting takes place in the future. There is an example of this on page 4:"the silent air-propelled train slid soundlessly down its lubricatedflue in the earth and let him out with a great puff of warm air onto the cream-tiled
escalator rising to the suburb. We know it is autumn when the author states“ The autumn leaves blew over…”. (pg 5).

We also learn that is takes place in the future when on Mildred is "cooking" on page 18: Toast popped out of the silver taster, was seized by a spidery metal hand that drenched it with melted butter."
