Mitsubishi 2MR (Type 10) Carrier Reconnaissance biplane, “A-64”, c. 1930, with a battle line of IJN battleships in the distance.

From the wiki: “The Mitsubishi 2MR was a Japanese carrier-based reconnaissance aircraft of the 1920s, also known as the Navy Type 10 Carrier Reconnaissance Aircraft or the C1M in the Navy’s short designation scheme. Designed for Mitsubishi by the British aircraft designer Herbert Smith, the 2MR was used by the Imperial Japanese Navy through the 1920s and 1930s.

“The biplane series of the 2MR continued in service aboard Japan’s aircraft carriers through the 1920s and into the 1930s, with versions being used as intermediate trainers until the late-1930s. Many were converted to civil use, being used both as trainers and for communications purposes for newspaper companies. Some remained in civilian service until 1938.”
