Teacher’s Pointer 1955

Teacher's Pointer 1955

About this memory

Designed to enable the teacher to point out pertinent information on the Blackboard, it also was used as a means of chastising miscreants.
How well I remember the 1 times 1 is 1, two times 1 is 2 being interrupted by the sound of the pointer smacking on some poor pupil’s hand or head.
