Definitely looks like a Douglas piston wing.

DC-3, absolutely. And that could be me - I was a DC-3 captain for Air Miami/Shawnee Airlines in the late 1970s!

Other operators then - Air Sunshine, PBA, Florida Airlines and Pro-Air. All operating scheduled passenger services around Florida and the Bahamas.
