GALLOWAY ( 1921 - 1929 ).

The Scottish car manufacturer GALLOWAY was founded in 1921 in Tongland / Scotland. It was a subsidiary of ARROL - JOHNSTON, led by Dorothee Pullinger. She enforced that the factories employed almost only women. So the slogan was : "MADE BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN". As far as I know, engines from ARROL-JOHNSTON were also installed. Because there was free capacity in the ARROL-JOHNSTON  factory, the company moved to their premises in Heathhall in 1922.

About 4,000 vehicles were built in 8 year.

The emblem shows a lion and not a Galloway cattle, which would have been appropriate. However, the vehicle was probably not named after the cattle, but after the Galloway region in southwestern  Scotland.
