2.  Human Alarm Clocks

That's right, there used to be people called "knocker-uppers" who basically acted like alarm clocks.  They'd go by and knock on clients' windows or doors to ensure they got up in time for their jobs. 

3.  Milkmen

There's a long tradition of milk delivery men and women dating back to the 1800's all across the world.  This is often one of the things we remember most about the 1950's and 1960's when the milk man would come by.
