Wallace 'Glasgow' 28hp tractor, 1919.
© Science Museum / Science & Society Picture Library
This agricultural tractor manufactured by Wallace (Glasgow) Ltd, Cardonald, Scotland, was another attempt to compete with the Fordson tractor in the British market. It was an unusual form of three-wheeled tractor with drive to all wheels. Its three-point stability and tractive power made it popular in hill country and waterlogged soils, and it did find favour abroad, but its cost was against it. This marque of tractor finally succumbed to the Fordson and economic depresion in the mid 1920s.
