The history of wallpaper in the 1930's and 40's
from
www.historybuff.com

During World War II, the wallpaper industry was dealt a serious setback. The War Production Board classified wallpaper as a non-essential commodity and greatly reduced the number of allowable styles, new patterns and sample books, and prohibited the use of metallic bronze and aluminum powders.

Manufacturers were required to use a lighter weight stock of paper which affected the overall quality of the wallpaper. Full production resumed in 1945 when the limits were removed and manufacturers increased production to keep pace with sky-rocketing consumer spending.

The years immediately following the war were a booming period for wallpaper sales in the 1946-1947 season manufacturers sold more than 400,000,000 rolls. The jump in sales can also be attributed to postwar consumers who purchased wallpaper as relief from the plain walls of the stark modern interior of the 1920's.

I was born in the 1940's, so seeking out the wallpapers for this era has taken me back to my childhood. We lived very modestly in a smal terrace house. One of my earliest memories is of sitting in front of the fire on a mat made of rough burlap/sacking. The mat was embroidered with orange and green string. Many years later, I commented to my mum that they must have been very poor, to have had a burlap mat in the living room. Mum explained that it wasn't a matter of money. They had been bombed out of their previous house, losing the rug along with lots of other items. They had been unable to purchase a new rug, because there were simply none available.


A British 1940's living room

This living room looks a lot like the one in the house where I grew up. The fireplace is almost identical, this was the only room in the house that was warm in the winter. We had fireplaces in the front room and the bedrooms, but coal was rationed until 1958, so we could never use the other fireplaces.
Our bedrooms were so cold and damp, we all had our own hot water bottles. These made the bed feel sort of steamy.
It wasn't a posh house, by any means, but it was clean. I don't know how my mum did it, but everything was always shining.

This is a wartime picture of an English living room. The large cage looking thing is a Morrison shelter. It is in the Morrison shelter that people would sleep when Britain was being bombed. My parents had one of these.
