(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 112: Brother and Sister?

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

I managed to scan about 100 family photographs in the Scanfest in January, and have converted the scanned TIF files to smaller JPGs, cropped and rotated as best I can. Many of these were "new" to my digital photograph collection.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

There is no information on the front or back of this photograph. I do not know who these children are, where this photo was taken, or when it was taken. It was in the Smith-Carringer-Auble photo collection, so it could be from the 1870 to 1910 time period in Cloud County, Kansas (Smith), Red Willow County, Nebraska (Smith), Boulder County, Colorado (Carringer) or Cook County, Illinois (Auble).

There is a small studio logo in the lower right-hand corner of this photo, but I don't have the "tools" to bring it up clearly.

These children are probably brother and sister, with an older girl (perhaps age 10-15) and a younger boy (perhaps age 8 to 12).

I looked at other photos in my collection, and the girl's face and hair is similar to that of Carlie Brown-Smith in Post 89 of this series.
