    Tricky. I remember Thunderbirds wallpaper, and others.

    I would love to find a piece of Rowland Emett wallpaper, but I've only ever seen one sample.

    I wondered if attaching the word "vintage" to the search would help, but it quickly led to these early 70's horrors...
    Original retro wallpaper & vinyl wallcovering from the sixties & seventies - A unique collection of original 1950's to 1980's wallpapers for sale!

    I think we had the one on the left...

    Hi, I am in the U.S., but I TOTALLY remember this wallpaper!! It was in my room as a kid growing up in the 70's. I also have been searching all over for at least a pic of it so I can share with my son. I wish I would have been smart enough to steal a scrape of it before I moved out and became a grown-up!

    It was great. It had illustrations of the moonscape, pod, flags, astronauts working on the moon. If I remember correctly, it had 4 or 5 different illustrations and they repeated over in a random pattern. It used a lot of red, whites and blues. The illustrations weren't "kiddie" or anything like that, but fairly accurate 3-color renderings of the different moonlanding events.

    My fav part of my childhood is thinking of all the great times I had in that room while I was reading and hanging out with my friends. I haven't had any luck finding anything about it and your's is the first post to make me finally realize that I didn't make it up!

    I have tried looking under vintage, children's wallpaper 70's, moonlanding wallpaper, etc. But yeah, it's unfortunate that wallpaper means desktop wallpaper as well as room wallpaper.

    I would love to find that wallpaper again. Anyone else remember?

    Wow finally someone else who had it.I had it in my room as a small kid in the 70's but still remember it well.Sadly ive never found any pics of it anywhere,despite spending along time searching.I did ask my dad if he remembered where he bought it,but he dosen't even remember me having that paper .The search goes on.

    I thought I was mad (searching for beloved wallpaper of my childhood) but clearly I'm not alone. I too had this wonderful wallpaper. As I recall it was NASA related and had a moon buggy as one of the illustrations, I also remember the American flag quite distinctly. As I've officially reached middle age (40) my boyhood nostalgia has has grown even bigger.

    I will continue the pursuit to find it.

    I also had some fabulous cowboy wallpaper but that's another story.

    Looks like there's more and more of us that had this wallpaper.I'm sure if we all keep searching,a pic will finally be found! Hopefully.
