I am guessing this is a telegraph set up, but please correct me if I am wrong.  All I can think of is that the rig looks like the great-grand father of a modern podcasting set-up.  It’s interesting to see how little has changed from this time through HAM radios and now pod/videocasting.

March 31, 1922. “H.G. Corcoran of Washington, D.C., needs an aerial for his radio outfit. His receiving wire is connected to the wire springs of his bed, which take the place of an aerial.” Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative.
