    Cute girl. Is this depression era? Newspapered walls and her flour sack dress made me think so.

    Back in the late 1970's I had a very elderly couple on my paper route who still had newspapers pasted to their walls like this, I think for both insulation to keep out the drafts and maybe for a little decoration. It was very old house, they seemed to take care of it the best that they could. As I recall the home had asphalt(maybe asbestos) siding on the outside. I first saw the interior walls like this one winter when I had to collect for the paper delivery each month and they invited me in while they gathered up the $5.00 for the months newspaper delivery. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

    Looks like I should have read the title. You bring back memories for me. I delivered to two old couples on my paper route. They lived off the grid with coal stove heating, kerosene lamps and the ice man delivered their refrigeration in our suburban cul de sac. Nice folks they were.

    For more moving photos from history you should explore the full site:

    Try searching for towns or objects like "wood stove" or "Edsel", you'll be there for hours.

    I live in the western mountains of North Carolina. I have been in some very old farm houses around our area that still have the newspaper on the wall and the wood that they used to build the house is wormy chestnut. Amazing looking at the walls covered in newpaper and realize the history that is represented!
