I've done a lot of remodeling work in WV and one of my favorite jobs was to strip the wallpaper from a room to prepare it for modern finishing.

Underneath the two or three layers of gaudy, flowered wallpaper was, oftentimes, a layer of newspaper that poorer folk would paper their wall with.

Fortunately I was self employed, so the time I took to salvage readable news from the thirties and forties was on my dime.

I surely loved to read what Mountain folk were reading in those days.
