Plot "Bill, the Bill Poster," is just finishing hanging a 20-sheet of the "American Vitagraph." His friend Pete, the Paper Hanger, comes along, converses with his friend and the two men, each with their paper bag and pail of paste, start for a nearby saloon. They enter, have five or six drinks together, and come out in a rather unsteady condition. After bidding each other an affectionate farewell, they go off in opposite directions. The paper hanger's bag goes off with the bill poster and vice-versa. We follow the paper hanger to the house where he is engaged to do some work. He ascends the steps and with much difficulty gets up stairs. A table is prepared for him and he goes to work pasting three-sheets, one-sheets, etc., on the walls. He finishes the room; has it covered with paper of melodramatic and beauty shows. The servant enters and is horrified at the sight. The paper hanger endeavors to hug her, and, almost frightened to death, she escapes. The master of the house and his wife return and find their door covered with lithographs and date sheets. The servant rushes out and tells her story. They all enter: the man wild with rage, his wife on the verge of fainting. The workman is just helping himself to a drink from a bottle on the sideboard, whereupon the boss kicks him down the stoop, throws the show paper after him and dumps the pail of paste on his head. The bill poster during this time has been just as busy as his companion. We find him mounted on a step ladder trying to paste wall paper on a fence where theatrical paper should be displayed. He gets all tangled up. A crowd gathers to watch his efforts. The manager of the theatre and one of his assistants happen along and remonstrates with Bill. He pastes a strip of paper on his employer's back and is promptly kicked into the street. He scrambles to his feet and walks off. Down the street he meets the paper hanger. Both embrace each other. They spy a policeman leaning against a lamp post dozing and paste a date reading "Friday, the 13th" on his back. The cop wakes up, clubs both men unmercifully and drags them off.... search for Bill, the Bill Poster, and Pete, the Paperhanger on IMDb
