1903 Shuttle Row & Bottom Row

Pictured here in 1903 is a painting of Shuttle Row on the top left and Bottom Row on the right. It was really the end of Bottom Row (with exception of the Mill House at the end, which still stands today)

The drawing serves as a good example of what these buildings looked like at a time when everything you see pictured was being condemned. Conditions at this time, were not good, indeed deplorable. When the David Livingstone Centre is renovated, it will have an extension built on to the back elevation, to make the building larger, something I’m really looking forward to.

Today, there are modern flats built near to this location.
