Circus buried in the walls

Yesterday I had an opportunity to have a look at a very old Burlington house in the middle of a rehabilitation project.  The interior has been gutted and a very patient carpenter is slowly rebuilding everything from the bathroom floor to the bedroom ceiling, which drops about 8 inches from front to back.  In the attic apartment the inside of the walls were strangely colorful.  I didn’t have a chance to examine them until all the business was done, but what I discovered is that the boards had giant circus advertisements glued to the inside.  Sadly they were in tatters, and they’ll probably end up getting buried back in the wall when the project is done.
