My grandparents bought and remodeled the building at 114 Fullerton Street (at Center Avenue) in 1923. In the 1940’s, Fairman’s distributed wallpaper books and made catalogs for other paperhangers and for hardware and department stores in small towns. The books were put together by the family. They chose the patterns from the manufacturers’ samples. Bigger samples of wallpaper were showcased in a display on the wall. Each year the sample books were changed to make room for new patterns. I was allowed to take the old books upstairs and cut and paste the paper to make art work.
