Eatonville’s school secretary, Mrs. Norwood, is out for a drive in her Whippet car, along with a dog (I assume it’s hers) in the back seat.

Wikipedia has this to say about the car, “In 1908, John Willys bought the Overland Automotive Division of Standard Wheel Company and in 1912 renamed it Willys-Overland Motor Company. From 1912 to 1918, Willys was the second-largest producer of automobiles in the United States after Ford Motor Company.”
