With a home of that era it is doubtful whether there is
any weather vapor which seves to protect the walls from
exterior moisture from entering. Also it is very unlikely
for there to be a vapor barrier which protects the wall
assembly from the moisture of the interior accumualating
in the wall. SO do you want to reside the home and
install a weather barrier? If so I suggest also to
install a rain gaurd type secondary moisture barrier.
Or do you want to replace the interior wall and install
a continuous vapoor barrier. This opion allows you to not
distured the the rustic exterior look of the walls
while giving you the oppertunity to add insulation
to the wall cavity and to modernize the interior with drywall.
