While waiting to finish my Surry Parker, I had fun making a forest camp tent around the 1880s.
The skis and the floor are made of fir, the frame of the tent is made of 9x9 samba.
The canvas is a fine cotton soaked in hot tea.
The seams were made by madam.
I point out that the canvas is really a house.

Charnwood Forest Railway. Rothley. Leics.
Excellent modelling. It looks just right for fishing out on the ice.

Wow have seen odd pictures of such things in Logging Railway Books, brings them to life seeing your one. One has to wonder though at the strength of Logging guys perhaps over wintering in such a contraption.
