The low sun of a winter Wednesday fell on the Exchange and
the warehouse precinct this week. David Loughrey visited an
area struggling with the labour pains of rebirth and found
decay, renewal and the failings of a city.
A hot day in winter, the vagaries of the racetrack and the
complexities of the Totalisator Agency Board almost cost
David Loughrey $20 this week. He went to bear witness to the
lure of the greyhound and the mind-set of the gambling man.
Only the absurdities of luck saved the day.
