The woman driving the electric car is Edna S. Purcell. William Gray Purcell stands to the far right.
This is the main (and apparently only) image available of the original facade. During "improvements" to Yale Place in later decades, the front was demolished. Purcell writes about this in his Parabiographies entry. The remainder of the building serves as an architect's office. This image was published in The Western Architect.
