Obsolete Jobs: A Slideshow of Occupations that Went Away

This post has nothing to do with any of our usual concerns, but we want to post it anyway. The topic is jobs of yesteryear, which we found on the NPR website.

We all know that jobs change over time, but it's interesting to review some of the occupations that once were, but are no more.

Two quick examples: Telegraph operators and copy boys. Check out the NPR slideshow of obsolete jobs  here.
