"He sits back into the Bullnose Morris and picks up his driving gloves Quote"

The Bullnose Morris was a motor car made by the Morris Motor Co of the United Kingdom in the first thirty years of the twentieth century. A motor car was a great luxury in Dublin at that time and driving one of these would certainly have given Charlie great kudos. We are told it is not quite Charlie's car but we can assume that the man who left it with him is not coming back. Ada would have been suitably impressed to be taken for a ride in a car such as this, it would have indicated that Charlie 'had a few bob' and was therfore something of a catch.
