Maine Historical Society
Wallpaper was commonly used in households beginning in the early 19th century.
Wallpaper would have been available from any number of merchants selling material "in the latest fashion" that came on ship from Boston or abroad.
This wallpaper sat on a shelf of a Portland store for more than 70 years before it was given to Maine Historical Society in 1897.
