What were your ancestors looking at?

Tara Calishain mentioned this database of historic wallpaper in her ever-amazing ResearchBuzz newsletter last fall. No kidding: search by year, designer, pattern number, or 20 other parameters.

Words fail me when I see some of what the old folks had to stare at. Actually it's mostly
New England wallpaper, but what did you expect? They seem to grow more history there for some reason.
