Formatted abstract
In late 1989 it fell to me, the senior chalkie at the Brisbane Stock Exchange, to train my successor. At the time I did not know he would be the exchange’s last trading floor clerk. I had been a chalkie on and off for five years from the mid‐1980s, between periods at university. Now I was doing both: reading for my final semester of English and chalking a few days a week.
