10 Jobs That No Longer Exist Today Human Alarm Clock Knocker-uppers were essentially alarm clocks – they were hired to ensure that people would wake up on time for their own jobs. They would use sticks, clubs or pebbles to knock on clients’ windows and doors.
Loggers were usually single men in their twenties. During the winter, they worked dawn to dusk, six days a week, cutting, hauling, and piling logs.
