1926 Shuttle Row Rear

1926 Shuttle Row Back wmA rare photo of the rear of Shuttle Row, at the Village, Blantyre.

From 1926, the photo dates before the renovation of Shuttle Row commenced, a time before it was turned into the museum. Shuttle Row was still lived in during this time, owned by William Baird & Co , the colliery owners.

This scene is about to get a whole different perspective, for part of the contemporary and current renovation plans for the museum, are to include large extensions on to the rear of the building, to make it a world class tourist destination. Planning has already been approved and once again, Blantyre’s Shuttle Row will soon again be a major tourist destination, with upgraded parking and grounds.
