The Galloway Motor Car

The “Galloway”

The header photo is that of a Galloway motor car made either at their Tongland or Dumfries works, and the lady standing by it is Miss Dorothée Pullinger who was an engineer and was instrumental in designing the car and running the factory. The Tongland factory survives, but I do not know what it actually makes now, while the Dumfries factory, which also survives and is visible for miles, is a sad wreck. Old mills and factories elsewhere have been re purposed in various ways and it is a shame that nothing has been done about this piece of Dumfries’ history.
