NYC, Sleeping Newsboys, Lewis Hine, 1908

Entitled: "Asleep while waiting for morning papers. 11 P.M. A grating at side of World Building, through which came a stream of warm air from ventilators. Various boys and men may be found here at different times of night and morning, staying until the policemen moves them on. Location: New York, New York. February 11th, 1908." The position of paperboy occupies a prominent place in many countries, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and Japan. This is because it has long been the first paying job available to young teenagers, often male. It is a low-standing job and therefore has relatively low-pay. As most papers are delivered early in the morning it requires the delivery person to get up early, which can also mean braving cold, dark, and inhospitable conditions. Newspaper industry lore suggests that the first paperboy, hired in 1833, was 10 year-old Barney Flaherty who answered an advertisement in the New York Sun, which read "To the Unemployed a number of steady men can find employment by vending this paper."
