Pullinger, one of Dumfries and Galloway’s most famous daughters, lived a fascinating life, working in munitions during World War One, then going on to oversee the construction of the Galloway car at Tongland near Kirkcudbright.
Key components of the exhibition, including a series of banners reflecting the spirit of the Suffragette movement and women’s activists of the early 20th Century, were the culmination of a UWS research project, led by Professor Katarzyna Kosmala.
The exhbition content is based on archival research that brings Pullinger’s story to life with a collection of artefacts gathered from her life-long career – and hopes to inspire engineers of the future.
The exhbition opened on 26 April 2021 and will be on public vieweing until 30 September 2021.
