    DescriptionIn association with the exhbition, the project team member Dr Nina Baker has brought to life the stories of the women who worked in the Heathhall and Tongland factories of Arrol-Johnston, before, during and after the First World War. Most famously, the managing director’s daughter, Dorothée Pullinger, was trained as an engineer and helped manage the factories as well as design the Galloway car, marketed for women drivers. Other pioneering women also got their start in engineering there and one, sadly, met her end.
