Throwback Thursday

My mother, Uncle Richie, BigBro and the infamous Aunt Eleanor. I assume my father is taking the picture but where am I, lol?

Our dining room wallpaper fascinated me as a child.
It was predominantly brown in color and those squares were drawings of early American scenes illustrating grammar rules. I guess my mother thought they might sink in through osmosis if we were exposed to them long enough…..I’m proof she was wrong…..

(I've done searches online to see if I could find it. Looking for close up's of the drawings or maybe reproductions of it, to no avail. I'm assuming it wasn't popular enough to reproduce like some of the other 1940's & 50's wallpapers, lol.) 


  1. that is some crazy wallpaper!!

  2. I agree with alarmcat crazy indeed.

  3. whoa…hope you come across it somewhere…somehow

  4. Like a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting

  5. What an idea educational wall paper.....maybe you are taking the picture and the question is where is your dad . . . Love the photo!
