Rare View of Shuttle Row

 

McNair 1200 dpiThis is a rare and previously unseen online photograph of Shuttle Row taken by Rev. J. I. MacNair.

Gordon Cook told me, “It has a heading “Homes and Haunts of the Greats”. It’s a view I haven’t seen before and shows some of the original tees. In the caption is states “A subscription was opened to save it from destruction in 1928.”

The photo may date from the 1930’s and shows what a wooded area was once there, prior to the World Fountain and subsequent, Africa Pavilions.
