This is a design for the cover of 'Pearson's Magazine'. Henry Haley produced several cover designs for this popular publication in the 1920s. It clearly appealed to a largely female readership. Here Haley uses the image of a woman driver to represent a modern outlook and an independent lifestyle. She is wearing a fashionable cloche hat and sports a bob.
