Shuttle Row – in a state

Shuttle Row clearly had seen better days by the time this picture was taken around the early 1920’s. This was a time when it was embarrassing to welcome visitors to Blantyre who wanted to see the birthplace of David Livingstone, a situation, which amongst other reasons for preserving the building, gave rise to the need for renovation and eventually, the museum.
