Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?
Far was Italy and the white houses and the room where her sisters sat making hats, and the streets crowded every evening with people walking, laughing out loud, not half alive like people here,
huddled up in Bath chairs, looking at a few ugly flowers stuck in pots!
huddle = crouch or curl up
Bath chair = a hooded wheelchair used especially for invalids, typically at a spa
Thanks for your efforts.
A bath chair doesn't have to be hooded, nor is it only for invalids. Here's a picture:
A bath chair—or Bath chair—is a rolling chaise or light carriage with a folding hood, which can be open or closed, and a glass front. Used especially by invalids, it is mounted on three or four wheels and drawn or pushed by hand.
