The Girl and the GXE

This very small print was buried in a box of "junk" photos at a swap meet, and both the presence of the girl posing on the tire, and the location at the beach intrigued me. I have no idea if this is one of the early aviatrixes, or just some gal who wanted her photo taken with the plane (maybe she'd gone for a joy ride in it?).

The registration, NC747E indicates that it was WACO GXE (aka WACO 10) serial number 1986,  the most popular type of WACO built, with 1,623 produced between 1927 and 1933.
