We had a canvas tent when we camped as kids in the very late 60's and 70's. I'm not sure much else existed until the (then) very expensive nylon backpacker tents were invented.
In scouts we had the same...canvas. Everyone did for the longest time. Now you don't see them..but I think they are really cool looking tents. I'm guessing there is a way to seal them so they don't leak much when it rains (I remember my dad talking about sealing the tent and the seams..) but I don't remember what you are supposed to do..or what they did back then.
I'm looking forward to the IRG..I have a scooter rally (camping) the week before. I'm not taking anything nice there so it doesn't walk away. IRG will get all the lanterns..thinking this might be the event where everyone gets out their really cool camping gear..like your vintage tent!
