This video shows the outside of some tents in a BC Forestry Service Camp. The COs lived in these tents. The sides were made of canvas and the floor was made of wood. The COs slept in bunkbeds. Did you notice the pile of wood outside the tent door? Each tent had a wood stove for heat on cold nights.
