I'd like to say these are those two same young men, early 1900, but the one on the left is in a pinafore - typical male dress for that time? Or is this his sister? And is that a rug or a dog? LOL Very daunting chair. These kids look well-mannered and ruled with an iron fist but also a loving heart.

Id say 1907, two young brothers. I bet they did not want to have this photo taken at all.

I'm thinking the same time period since there's a photo of my father-in-law from just about that time and which has the same look to it. He was in a "dress" and a dog was in the picture too, though it wasn't his. It was the photographer's. It seems to have been the style back then to put animals in photos of children. The stance of the child on the left is that of a little boy.

I really like this photo. It's a shame there's a furry blob in it.

Aladyforty was right on. The picture was taken around 1907 and the boy on the right was my fathers first cousin and my Godfather. The hairy thing on the floor was a sheep skin, I know this because I have 6 long haired sheepskins scattered around my house (I call them dog beds). I don't know who the boy on the left is, might have been a brother but he was long gone by the time I came onto the scene.
