Not much else going on here so I will contribute to the trivia. What in hindsight were awful things that a lot of people used in the past. A few examples to get started, woodchip wallpaper, fablon, stone cladding, artex, white wall car tyres.

Please do not be knocking wood-chip paper. I have quite a lot of it in my house, it covers a multitude of sins and, when well applied and decorated can look as good as anything else. It has the advantage of hiding scratch marks (from the cats) and minor damage (from the humans). Plus, if a bit is missed when decorating, it doesn't show!

So long live wood-chip
