The rent man that used to call every week, the people that used to call and empty the gas/electric meters, mobile shops, draymen that used to supply the pubs by horse and cart.

AA men on motorbikes still exist - or at least they did six years or so ago

I would suggest that a couple on the list may still exist.

When we lived in Richmond-Upon-Thames, Richmond Park was shut a few times a year, so they could cull the deer


And the last time I was at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, there was a lift operator

There is also a toll bridge in Bath, Batheaston Toll Bridge

One missing, do they still have 'wheel tappers' on the railway?
