Sharing a great photo story from NPR on obsolete jobs.
A “lector” who read aloud to cigar workers newspapers and political tracts as they worked, a “typesetter” who set type when manual type was norm, the “milkman” delivering fresh milk from a horse drawn wagon, a “pinsetter” setting up bowling pins before automated bowling alleys…
A photo documentary of storefronts from small family run businesses throughout New York City. Clic Gallery is currently exhibiting this amazing photograph collection by James and Karla Murray now till August 30th. We hope that one day when Three Potato Four opens up a storefront it will look and feel as mom-and-pop, well-loved and worn as these do.
