    Default BACK IN THE DAY Black and white pics reveal Britains forgotten jobs


    A worker uses stilts to put up hop poles in 1937 ahead of the crop being planted for brewing


    A lamp lighter gets to work making sure the night is not too dark in Warrington in 1912


    Workerse by posa loom at at cotton mill in 1906


    Female pillow lace makers get to work in 1900


    A London milkman poses with his cart in 1923



    Cockle Gatherers and there donkeys on the Beach in Llanstephen, Wales in 1890

    This projected loss of jobs has been attributed to advancing technology where machines will continue to replace the jobs of humans.

    Mechanisation has always cost humans their jobs. The mechanical loom for instance put weavers out of business, but its also created jobs.

    Mechanics had to keep the machines going, machinists had to make parts for them, and workers had to attend to them, and so on.

    A lot of times those in one profession could pivot to another.

    At the beginning of the 20th century for instance, automobiles were putting blacksmiths out of business.

    I disagree the lacemaker on the left looks like a young les dawson in a dress probably moonlighting early on in his career

    didn't know SJ's donkey was named Siri
