Scope and Content Cross-section of workers' tenement, Double Row, New Lanark New Lanark was founded in 1785 by David Dale and Richard Arkwright. It passed to Dale's son-in-law, Robert Owen, in 1799. Owen developed the village into a model community, aiming to make it both profitable and humane. There were 1,300 employees in the 1790s when their houses were built under Dale's leadership. This is a cross-section of one of the tenements in Double Row or Water Row. The flats were approached by communal stairs. When Owen took over he wanted to improve housing and sanitation in the village. He issued regulations, saying that each house had to be cleaned weekly and had to be whitewashed annually. No cattle, pigs, poultry or dogs were to be kept on the premises. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
