    Hey RM,
    Those orange canvas pop up tents were the classic style in the 50s. They were so well built for the times. A thick canvas, sewn in floor, sides and top. A door flap made into a small shade with poles and stakes. It was heavy compared to today’s nylon, all-season, pop up tents. Most of the variety stores sold these as well as small specialty camping stores. Back then, even the big name stores like Montgomery Ward and Sears sold them in the sporting goods sections.

    Our old orange, canvas tent came from Sears and was purchased in 1958. It has lasted over 28 years before the convenience of seam sealed, double thick nylon, pop up tents took over the camping scene. For one, there was no more water dripping inside of the canvas. Two, ground stakes were no longer needed. Three, the newish tents popped up with usually two long flexible poles.

    The green Coleman, white gas, pump stoves were the mainstays for cooking. We used them a lot until they were taken over by the cannister stoves and finally propane models.

    Wow! Kind of looks like the Bean Bandits digger on the near side. No clue on the far side dragster, but the high hood line might mean that it was powered by a straight-6 engine. I'm probably wrong on both counts...
