Shuttle Row

 Livingstone's Birthplace

Shuttle Row, built around 1780, was home to twenty-four families, including David Livingstone’s.

Conditions were basic, and its turret walls were inset with cast iron ‘jaw-boxes’ where sewerage was deposited, which must have made the approach to the house particularly unpleasant.

It is said that David Livingstone, after walking home from his studies at Glasgow University, so late at night, he had to sleep on the step because he could not raise his family.  Shuttle Row and Washouse
