33 Vintage Color Photos Show What Wallpapers Looked Like in the 1950s

Date back to before 1700, wallpaper is a material used in interior decoration to decorate the interior walls of domestic and public buildings.

Wallpapers can come plain as "lining paper" (so that it can be painted or used to help cover uneven surfaces and minor wall defects thus giving a better surface), textured (such as Anaglypta), with a regular repeating pattern design, or, much less commonly today, with a single non-repeating large design carried over a set of sheets. The smallest rectangle that can be tiled to form the whole pattern is known as the pattern repeat.

Wallpaper types include painted wallpaper, hand-printed blockwood wallpaper, hand-printed stencil wallpaper, machine-printed wallpaper, and flock wallpaper, etc.; with variety of colors.

Here below is a set of cool pics that show what wallpapers looked like in the 1950s.
