Marvel: 5 Heroes WhoMegan Elliott 28 June 2018 Coopers wheelwrights and salaeratus manufacturers: Some JobsBureau of Labor Statistics. We might now find the obsolete occupations of 100 or 200 years ago bizarre, but there is a fair chance that your occupation may appear equally odd to your grandchildren or grandchildren. Gradually, technological change and economic changes are making those jobs redundant. Don’t like us? Check out this list of workers under threat. Some of these occupations are already gone, while others are bound for historical books. There are 15 jobs here that no one in 20 years can know.

1. Video shop clerks In 2003 a Blockbuster team member arranges DVDs on a shelf. Tim Boyle / Getty Images The video store’s rise was quick and its decline was almost as fast. A few years after VCRs became available to many Americans in 1989 there were 30000 video rental stores in the United States. Nearly 170,000 employees of the video store by 2014. There were just 12,500 by 2016. Most Americans will have no idea what it would be like to have a snobby film student clerk secretly judging your film picks on Friday night. Next:

Gerard Julien / AFP / Getty Images Things are bad for video store clerks but their industry looks positively rosy compared to a historically popular business: the one-hour photo shop. In 2015, from 3066 in 1998, there were just 190 one-hour photo shops left in the whole of the US down. That drop of 94 percent over 15 years makes film drop-off stores the fastest-fading company in the United States. You can blame its loss on the iPhone. When digital photography took hold individuals no longer needed a place to print their 35 mm film rolls. Movie editing isn’t completely gone. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 29,000 workers were still working in the industry in 2014, though that number was expected to fall to 19400 by 2024. Given the inexorable transition away from film to multimedia opportunities, their numbers will fall much more in the next few decades. Next : Elevator operators

5 Toll collectors. Milkman

These days very few people use a dairyman. Keystone / Getty Images Most people relied on the milkman for their daily calcium dose before refrigeration. According to The New York Times, as late as 1963 almost 30 percent of American households were still welcoming the milkman every morning but less than 0.5 percent of people in the U.S. were getting milk deliveries by 2005. The dairyman is t fully extinct. People can still sign up with companies like Oberweis Dairy in Illinois for home milk delivery, but you pay a premium over the prices of the grocery store. With milk delivery likely to stay a niche service less people will have milkman memories as the years pass. 6.

You’ll need to travel abroad to fulfill your lighthouse-keeping dreams. Recently, officials in Tasmania had been looking for volunteers to staff a remote six-mile lighthouse off the coast. 13.
