I'm proud that I'm a Macmillan so many great ones came before me

Jack McCall

hi , as a small boy my great grandfather Thomas McCall Saw Mr Macmillan Ride Through His Village on his historic bicyle trip To Glasgow, he lived in The small Village of Penpoint which is very close to Mr Macmillans Home, he had great respect for Mr Macmillan and his invention , Although Thomas McCall upgraded The Bicycle With Brakes and other imrovements and was the first to sell them Comercially in the mid 1800s from his workshop in Kilmarnock he declined any recognition for its invention, like Mr Macmillan he never Patented his inventions, There Are Two of His Bicycles on Public Display , One at The London Science Museum. The Other in The Dumfries Observatory Museum, Jack McCall
