Vintage Canvas Water Bags

Back in the day, water bags were used by people traveling in the desert areas of the western part of the United States, where water was not readily available. These water bags were made of a heavy material like duck, canvas, or flax that allowed some of the water to evaporate to keep the rest cool. The closure at the top of the bag allowed it to be opened for cleaning and then resealed.
