Obsolete Jobs

Obsolete jobs

I had heard of a lot of these jobs mentioned in the above linked article. I was not familiar with the outhouse cleaners, but the majority of them I’d heard of. I didn’t know about Billy Boys, but it would be nice to be served tea at work, I think.

The dictaphone operator was still in existence up to a few years ago, but it didn’t quite work the same way. The doctor would record by telephone and the message would be sent to someone else to type. Now it’s mostly done by voice to text, which makes it rather interesting, especially when you’re including medical terms.

It will be interesting to see what jobs are in the future that we haven’t thought of yet. I am sure that some other current jobs will be obsolete soon, too.
