paperboy = (1) boy who sold newspapers on the street, (2) boy who delivered newspapers to residences
In the USA it's very common to call the newspaper simply "the paper".
The job of the paperboy has been replaced by adults. One adult with a vehicle (often a pickup) can do more work than a dozen boys. The hours are terrible (usually starting well before dawn) and the pay is low, but it's probably better for everyone: customers and boys. Sometimes two adults work together, one drives and the other throws the newspaper from the vehicle to the residence.
