Stopping plasterboard (2 o 2)

Stopping plasterboard

From the early 1900s plasterboard began to replace scrim (woven fabric) as a lining material in new houses. It was manufactured in New Zealand from 1927 and from 1931 was known as Gibraltar board. Here builders stop plasterboard (plaster the gaps and over nails) in a new 1950s house.
