Cute kid. Hope she learned to drive daddies car!

Good pic of what was probably a privileged child back in the day. Just looking at the surroundings.
Nah Tim. If she was a "privileged child" she wouldn't be sitting in a T, it would be a Packard or a Pierce Arrow or something.
Picture implies she lives in that home in the background, which is pretty swanky . . . but maybe it's just in the picture. Not all well-to-do folks bought Packards, Pierces or Peerless' "in the day" . . . some were penny-wise and practical, and bought Fords, especially if they didn't care for "appearances".
Maybe the house cost so much that there was only enough money left for a Ford.

In the 1920's my grandparents lived in this house in the hills of Hollywood Ca. They drove a Model T. Their reason was that it was a dependable car. my grandfather and uncle drove the T all the way from Los Angeles to Plymouth Rock and up into southern Canada and back one summer. They took route 66.
They could have afforded a more expensive car, but chose to drive a Ford. Later they bought a Model A and still later a V8.
If it was a studio photo it would have been the studio's car!
Or part of a car for studio prop. jb
