These are two 1950 magazine advertisements for Imperial Wallpaper made by the Imperial Paper and Color Corporation, Glen Falls, NY.
The first ad is Imperial washable wallpapers and the second ad is for the Glendura branded soil-proof wallcoverings.
The Imperial Color Works, Inc., established in 1915 at Glens Falls, New York, was one of the many synthetic organic colorants plants launched in the U.S. during the World War I dye famine. Industrial activity at the site had begun earlier with American Wallpaper, which became Imperial Wallpaper in 1901.
