Mystery RPPC: Group of 4 kids

This real photo postcard was produced by Kruxo, which is a change of pace from the AZO postcards that I have more commonly come across. Interestingly, this one seems to have a stamp box that's a less-documented variation, with circles in each of the four corners. That variation isn't listed at either Playle or MetroPostcard. But, based upon Kruxo's other stamp boxes, I think it's safe to assume this card was produced sometime between 1908 and the end of the 1920s.

And who are these folks? This is all that's written on the back of the postcard, which was never mailed:

[in pen]
Frances Cecil
Lucian Irvan

[in pencil]

So, the four boys' names are probably Frances, Cecil, Lucian and Irvan. (And no, it was not uncommon for children of Lucian's age to wear a gown at that time.)
