Looks like an engineer checking the Wright Cyclone engines. Engines were delivered to North American as assembled units what I see front the photograph, is the front cowling, crankcase, cylinders were arranged around a central crankshaft, with connecting rods. You can see the engine cooling gills, the ignition harness, in front of each cylinder, actuators and on top is the carburetor air intake. What you don't see, are the boost and fuel pumps, hydraulic lines and the supercharger. During WWII Wright built over 50,000 of these engines. Say checkout those 1940s shoes they look like brown in color, with white tops!
