I recently purchased a home that was built in 1940. Throughout the house you can see these seams on the walls and ceilings.

Some of the seams are uniform in size and distance from one another. Others appear to be more patchy.

What am I dealing with, and how do I get smooth walls?

Thanks in advance.

I'm guessing that someone was very lazy and instead of removing it, they painted over the wallpaper.

No doubt about it. Bad former owners. You can even see the bubbles under it.
