    that is a navy cannon from the American civil war period, you can tell by the barrel, it is an American gun design called the Dalgren gun. it was a” rifled” (spiraled grooves in barrel for better speed and placement of cannon ball on the target) as opposed the the smoothbore (no grooves) cannon of many centuries use before his high tech development in the 1860s during the American civil war. this would most likely be at a naval base or port in the deep south with the palm like trees I would guess. picture is of course from the mid 20th century with there clothing styles.

    Sorry, Ed, clothing styles are from the 1920s-1930s.
