Obsolete professions

No doubt our current jobs will look as quaint in 50 years as these above. Clockwise from top right, a beach photographer, a milkman, ice deliverers and a lamplighter. The photographs are from the Nationaal Archief of the Netherlands.

I can imagine people in the future being amused by pictures of, say, writers sitting at their desk surrounded by these things called "books." Shots of newspaper delivery people, also will be worth a chuckle.
