Here’s an interesting postcard of Blantyre. I can well imagine this card once being sold in the giftshop of the David Livingstone Centre. Not only featuring the great explorer himself, but also a nice view of the back of Shuttle Row, when once there was no woodland. The steep braes rolling down to the road below. The card is marked with a ‘*’ showing the window of Livingstone’s former home. His birthplace.
The David Livingstone Centre has been recently been rebranded to ‘David Livingstone Birthplace” with a multi million pound renovation underway.
