    What year would you date that photo from?

     

    Would be interested to learn.  I say around the time of the Spanish American War and TR or WWI and Wilson. 

     

    US NAVY though, right?

    What's going on in this photo? Is the "umbrella" some sort of prismatic device for backsights??
