The first decorator

im re-decorating  one of the rooms . I f i do it myself then all the stuff just gets moved from side to side as I work my way around.  Probably a bit less work than having to empty it all  to let someone come and do it all i one go. Ive been stripping off the wallpapers down to the plaster the bottom layer of wallpaper is this. I don't know enough about it to date it

and then above the door there was this
And closer inspection showed some writing in pencil

Ive had a play with GIMP to try and enhance the writing .
The top writing is "Easter Monday  April25 1886" and the bottom writing is '1892' . I've no idea if i can find out who did the writing .
