Not a Den Mother...

"Den Mothers" came in with Cubs, which wouldn't be started until 1930 or so.
I don't recognize the uniform the driver's wearing at all, but it seems unlikely it's
a Scout uniform - there wouldn't have been any female Scout leaders during WWI, and the hat
doesn't match any Scout leader headgear.

Den Mother?

Looks like Mom is the chauffeur. What kind of car is this?
