The webmaster for Canal Place is also the author of a book:

Twirling Jennies: A History of Social Dance (and other mischief) in the City of Spindles 1820–1920

The two pages below are from a chapter about the downtown dance sites of early Lowell. They describe a particularly noteworthy event that took place at the Lowell Manufacturing Co. complex (part of which became Canal Place) in 1848.
