The Writing on the Wall

This old house has some secrets. When we installed the new door to the basement, we removed some of the crumbling old plaster around the edges & started pulling away some of the old wallpaper. Check out what we found! Click on these photos to see them full size.

A bunch of phone numbers written all over the wall.

I’ve been trying to figure out why there might be a bunch of phone numbers scribbled all over the wall. Maybe they just figured they’d have some fun before they threw on the wallpaper. Maybe this was a rental property at some point and the tenants just wrote all over the wall. Maybe the house was vacant for a while and drug dealers or prostitutes used it as a place to meet clients.
So what do you think? Why would someone scribble notes & phone numbers all over the wall?
