The official Navy image is flipped right-to-left from what is seen here and so this photo may appear elsewhere in that orientation, but the buttoning of the President’s jacket and the ribbons on the Admiral’s uniform each confirm that this is the correct view. Also, and curiously, even though the Navy image is flipped, the official caption still identifies the President as being on the left.
