Blackboard Duster 1955

Blackboard Duster 1955

About this memory

Along with a damp cloth, this was the other main means of rubbing chalk off the Blackboard.
Made of wood with a felt-like bottom, it was also used by some teachers as a means of attracting the attention of inattentive pupils sitting at the back of the class.
