My Industrial Age job.

At the Museum of Childhood, they had a lot about being a child many years ago. Before the 1900s, children worked. During the Industrial Age from the 1760s, children worked in terrible placed like factories and mines. They were very dangerous and many kids got killed.

If I was a boy about  230 years ago I would choose to be a paper delivery boy. They had to deliver the news papers to the local houses before going to school. 

They also had to think about getting to school on time or else they'd be in trouble.

Paper boys didn't get paid much. Al the money kids earnt went to the parents to pay for food and house. Everyone worked back then. Everyone was poor.

Here is an ad I saw.
