Embossed aluminum similar to that was very popular as siding for commercial buildings in need of a facelift in the 60s.
The embossing takes the oilcan quality out of the sheet and adds strength.

I recall Lauers Furniture and the Rochester and Cadillac Hotels getting the treatment. Before the Rochester was brought down by explosives somebody with a bucket truck and portable baler made out well dropping the aluminum and scrapping it.
