GUSN-178719

Description

Portion of wallpaper roll endpaper with label: "INSTRUCTIONS FOR HANGING PRESSED PAPERS. Take one roll at a time and cut into requisite strips. Then paste said strips, using very heavy paste thereto, working it well into the paper, but not allowing the strips to soak too long. Now trim the selvage accurately, using a straight edge and knife, but be careful not to crease the fold. The strip is now ready for wall and must be put on with a soft brush or cloth but never with a roller. Now take the second roll and treat as aforesaid, and every succeding roll in like manner until the job is completed. A better result is obtained by lining the wall. WARREN, FULLER & CO., Branch of National Wall-Paper CP., 129 East 42d Street, N.Y."
