|I like this one (ch.10), and a question about travelling chairs

[Catherine] cheerfully submitted to the wish of Mr. Allen, which took them rather early away, and her spirits danced within her, as she danced in her chair all the way home.
I can just picture Catherine "dancing" in her chair, and her happiness bubbling up inside her!
BTW, by "chair" I picture something like those you see in old-time Hollywood movies, where the chair has curtained sides so you can't see in, and sits on two wooden bars which are hoisted up on two or four men's shoulders. Do I have the right idea, or am I totally off? Also, why would the Allens and Catherine take chairs back to their lodgings rather than some kind of carriage? Were they the equivalent of a taxi? Oh - another question: would men and women use these chairs equally, or were they used more by women?
