Future Japanese Aircraft Carrier

flight deck scene HIJMS Akagi in 1942.
Unusual colourised photo of Akagi, clearly showing splinter protection to the bridge area. It is slightly confusing, I know, but this is a view looking AFT along the flight deck, Akagi being rare in having her island on the port side. There is a very powerful force of ships astern of Akagi in this photo, with four other carriers and four capital ships visible. The second carrier, the one immediately ahead of the four battleships, also has a port side island, which identifies her as Hiryu. I am assuming this photo was taken during the preparations for the operation intended to destroy the remainder of the US fleet and capture Midway, which took place in June 1942. Akagi and Hiryu were both among the Japanese carriers lost at Midway.
