Raised End, Faceted Marquees

Raised End TentA Mr. Sandby took the time in the mid eighteenth century to sketch and paint some wonderful camp scenes. They include great details for tents that are hard to determine anywhere else. He drew tents in formal settings with civilians crowding around, and tents on military campaign with the troops milling about. One of the most interesting of his observations was this end entry marquee. A true treasure the RAISED END MARQUEE offers some of the best of both the round and square marquees (raised-end marquee to the left depicts a 13′ x 22′ tent).

Raised End TentThe shape of a raised end marquee is a modified round end. In other words, there are fewer triangles in the ends so the tent appears more as a facet than a half circle. The walls and doors are highest at the ends (5’8″ on the 10’6″marquees and 6’2″ on the 13′), tapering to a low point at the center of the sides(4′ for the 10’6″ and 4’6″ on the 13″). This graceful curve gives the marquee a truly elegant appearance (raised-end marquee to the right depicts a 13′ x 22′ tent).

Raised End TentThe shallow roof pitch and differing wall heights make perimeter poles a necessity for this structure. While contributing to the transportation burden, they do allow the tent to take up less camp space (raised-end marquee to the left depicts a 15′ x 27′ tent) .
