Mystery RPPC: Couple of wee folk

Alas, there's not much that can be said about this pristine AZO real photo postcard, which dates to between 1910 and 1930. (That means there's an outside chance one or both of these kids is still alive and in their early 90s, if the photo was taken in 1930. They would likely be wearing different outfits now, if you're trying to identify them on the street.)

There is no writing on the back and the postcard was clearly kept somewhere safe for many decades, in order to look this good in 2019. I almost feel like I should put it somewhere safe and see if we can get it to survive 100 more years. Should I add a note to the back, indicating that it was assessed by a Gen X blogger during the Trump administration and found to be an utter mystery?

Or maybe I should stamp and mail it. That'd really throw future historians for a loop.
