I have ripped off the wall paper and linen backing that was there in the beginning exposing the plastered walls and support battens for the re-wall papering.
Re-papering begins with stretching linen across these battens.
To this permeable sub-strata is the plain brown backing paper pasted.
After which time the final more decorative and eye pleasing and also more costly wall-paper is hung also by pasting.
Please accept that this is an early technique of room beautification, cleverly conceived to achieve the most refined results under particular conditions.
(Guess I won’t get accepted at the entry points of Israel now).
