This is a re-post from an earlier entry. Say what you will about British imperial policy of the 19th and 20th centuries. They certainly worked out minimalist travel with a fair amount of style and comfort on a very personal level. These old catalogs give some great ideas for camp living.
From The Army and Navy Co-operative Society Store, London 1907
There are some excellent items here that should give some inspiration for fabricating some classic and classy gear. From an era before the activity of “camping” was fully segregated from “regular living”.
Much more of this to come…

I see a number of pieces that I’ve been wanting to make listed here. The Roorkhee chair in particular looks fantastic and has been on my project list since I first saw it over at Lost Arts Press. They have detailed plans and intend on producing a how to DVD on them soon.
