319 North Main
Brocker Wallpaper & Paint

1875 - Gustave Johannpeter

Henry Brocker was a house decorator, sign painter, and artist from Prussia.  He specialized not only in wallpapering, but also graining, a technique that imitated expensive wood, and calcimining, a special whitewash for plastered ceilings.  Brocker ground pigments and mixed paint by hand.  Because paints often faded, wallpaper was preferred for all the important rooms in a house.
