Maybe it is a regional thing, I worked many years doing restoration work in homes that dates back to the very early 1800's in West Tennessee and I never saw canvas used in any of the homes either. I can see where it would be a good idea to use canvas on the walls and ceilings to stop air infiltration where there was little to no insulation especially up North. I can see where it would be a good idea to use to hold plaster in place also.
