1904 - 1907
Hitchon Gear & Automobile Co. Ltd., Accington, Lancashire
Two types of Globe were made, one with a 9hp single-cylinder engine with variable-lift inlet valve, designed by Alfred Hitchon, and worm drive, the other a tourer with 12hp 4-cylinder White & Poppe engine. Not more than 12 were made of each type. The cars sometimes went under the name Hitchon-Weller, as a partner was John Weller who had made the Weller at West Norwood, and designed the Autocarrier which became the A.C.
