Common thing back then!
Now that's a lineup.
...Thanks to the efforts of H.S.Gann retired Douglas Aircraft Historian...
here is more of the story of your picture...
The aircraft is the DC-1.
The date of the photo was probably 1935, the year
that the DC-1 set a Los Angeles to New York record.
In any event your photo is the same external configuration except for the
addition of the antennas to the forward upper fuselage and the addition of
engine cowl flaps.
This tends to make me believe that this was the
configuration for Hughes planned world flight.
He never flew the DC-1 on this flight but later made the flight in the Lockheed 14.
The DC-1 was sold to Viscount Forbes in England and then on to Spain.
It is entirely conceivable to me that Hughes
could have given Amelia a ride in the aircraft.

Dad always liked taking pictures of us growing up. Not exactly the Corleone family but Dad did a great job raising us all after our Mom passed in 1953.
