A boy who delivers newspapers to people’s homes.
- Because I live in the middle of nowhere, the paper boy doesn't deliver this far into the wilderness, so I have to drive out to the next village and collect the newspaper myself.
- He had worked as a paper boy while he was at school and more recently in the engineering and concreting industry.
- How do paper boys / girls manage today with probably 3 times the weight of papers as 35 years ago?
