Squint Shot 031512

We ascended (Steve and I) the steps from the basement of the Edward Jones storefront and I noticed how this slat wall had been left exposed. I asked Steve about it and he commented it had been left that way on purpose to show what is behind the drywall. It is crude and very rough to the touch, and it makes me wonder what so many of these stores looked like years earlier. Were these walls exposed or covered?

Those wood strips are called lath and they were used to hold the plaster to the wall.Google lath and plaster construction and look at the images
