Hello

Looking for any pictures of this lovely awning I have just acquired. It didnt have any poles, must be at least 30 years old, hardly used. I am looking for any history about it, I live in Ipswich and know this was made in Ipswich by J Rands and Jeckell, (long shut down) handbooks, pictures, frame suggestions would be greatfully received.

I want to bring this item back to its former glory, and any idea what it actually looks like erected would be fantastic.

Happy Camping! Reg

I found some info on this website run by Reading University hoping the link works

click the blue cross under the heading  Hierarchy browser and there are catologues of the goods they made.

GOOD LUCK

I have just inherited a rands and jeckell ‘classic’ tent - but not with instructions unfortunately. Trying to work out how all the poles fit! Did you get any joy with any manuals etc?
Thanks
Sally

Don't know if you'll get a reply from the OP, as that appears to be their one and only post (17/8/2013) on this forum, but does the tent appear to be a fairly conventional frame tent?

Thanks so much for the reply. I would guess it is a standard frame but am a total novice. Luckily there were some colour coded stickers on some of the parts. That - and an afternoon of puzzling it out - it’s up. Picture attached. Very 70’s!!
