This is an experimental wilson T1 director. After the death of its inventor in 1927 the project was taken over by the sperry corp and developed into the M2 director in 1930.

You are correct. Probibly an M5a1 in the lower portion of the picyure you can see the wheel and part of the platform of a 40 MM AA gun.

Looks to be a Jacobsen manufacturing co or Dayton MFG co cart used by the USMC/Army Signal Corps as the RL16 reel cart or a T4E1. this looks to be the 4th Marines from Shanghai
