“famous squabs I have known”

These are squabs. They are nestling-age pigeons.

This is also a squab.

But you know what’s also a squab? The blue seating mat is a squab.

And this is a squab.

And this is a squab. Not the two cushions though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And this. The cylindrical squabs are not squabs. They're bolsters.

And here are two squabs. The four cylindrical cushions are not squabs. They’re bolsters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's one.

Another place to see squabs are on boats. Here’s one, with matching bolsters and cushions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And proving they don't have to be rectangular, here's the classic squab installation in the bow of the boat - they are now sleeping mats - they now act as sleeping mats - but they're still squabs.

And they don’t have to be simple rectangles. Here are squabs that act as cushioning for the back-to-back seats in small boats. They’re covered in vinyl fabric because of the wet conditions on board. In the photo they have been removed from the boat and are sitting on someones floor. Although this example looks like a piece of upholstery it is in fact a squab – because IT IS NOT ATTACHED TO THE SEAT – it can be removed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The green, padded seating on this sun chair is a squab. It's upholstery that can be easily removed.

What else is a squab? The green, padded seating on this sun chair is a squab. As long as it can be easily removed, it’s a squab.

And finally .. spot the squabs. They are the removable seat pads. Are the two vertical pads at the back squabs? Why yes, yes they are!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So. Squabs.

Fabric covered seating pads (or occasionally backrests), usually rectangular but not always, that can be removed in one piece from the seat, and that aren’t cushions or bolsters.
