US Army sun helmet worn from 1881 to 1901. Considering the muzzle of the rifle the man in the left rear is holding, It looks like a 1903 Springfield. The man in the middle upper row has what appears to be Ordnance Corporal stripes ( corporal chevron over a flaming grenade). I'd say the time period was 1903 - 1907 when some units still wore the helmet even though it was no longer issued or considered a part of the uniform.
