Back to Backs launches appeal for wallpaper for new  exhibition at a historic Birmingham attraction

SCRAPS of wallpapers are needed for a new exhibition at a historic Birmingham  attraction.

This year, staff at the Back to Backs, in the heart of the city centre, are  working on a new project cataloguing and researching machine-made wallpaper.

As part of the project, the National Trust property is collecting stories  related to wallpaper and wants to hear from anyone with leftover wallpaper  samples, memories of decorating with wallpaper, those who have worked in  wallpaper manufacture and retail or is a collector of vintage wallpaper.

Husnara Bibi, from the project, said: “Everyone has an opinion on  wallpaper.

‘We want people to tell us about the most hideous paper they have seen, the  earliest one that they can remember and most importantly any decorating  anecdotes that they have.

“Whatever the story, big or small, we would love to hear it.”
