Wollensak of 500 National Ave in Milwaukee,Wis was the photographer.
The little boy has something in his hand…maybe one f those “wands” that a music director uses?  He is also holding his sisters hand.  The little girl appears to be holding some flowers.

Herbert Karl Wilhelm Graffenius (Sep. 18, 1891 - Mar. 24, 1947) lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and was the son of Herman Graffenius (1868 - 1927) and Louise nee Kloehn Graffenius (1869 - 1939). He apparently, like several of his brothers, never married. He worked as a Glass Maker but was unemployed as were his brothers in 1940.

Herbert is Find A Grave Memorial# 103125815

His younger sister, Elsa (Elsie) Anna M Graffenius was born 25 Apr 1893 and died on 8 Feb 1980. She married Carl A. Thoms (1887 - 1949) at the age of 33 and later she was the third wife of Edward H. Groshek Sr. (1901 - 1973). She is Find A Grave Memorial# 122929807. She appears to have never had children.

  4. The 'stick' looks like a crop that would have been used when riding horses.
