Sidewall, Nitty Gritty
This is a sidewall. It was manufactured by United-DeSoto Wallpaper Company. It is dated 1968 and we acquired it in 1994. Its medium is machine-printed vinyl, paper-backed. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.
Nitty Gritty was a new idea in wallpaper, designed in a graffiti-style to appeal to the under thirty consumer. Printed on vinyl this design is scrubbable, pre-pasted and strippable to make installation easier for this new market of do-it-yourselfers. The more neutral colors on this pattern would have formed a nice backdrop for the boldly patterned accessories so popular at this time.
