Yes.

It is a stacked pair of conical Yagis. Very popular TV antenna in the 1950-1970 time range.

The Conical Yagi covers both high and low VHF channels with moderate gain.

The conical driven element is quite broad band. Before log periodic antennas
were invented, the conical driven element was frequently used to obtain enough
bandwidth to cover the frequency range of VHF channels.
