Fashions and... Quadrilles

Coloured cartoon from the Northern Looking Glass 28 November 1825, the third of seven illustrations under the heading "Evening Fashions and New Quadrilles." This dance is La Poul[e], and this may be the first illustration of young Glaswegians at the dancing on the poule!

The illustrator William Heath included instructions from the dancing teacher, Monsieur Boulogne, for each dance.
