Default Bridge rectifier with capacitors???

Could somebody look at this and tell me what is going on? I found this on the Ampex website. It is from an old PR10 reel to reel recorder.

The bottom two elements in the bridge rectifier appear to be capacitors... which I found very confusing.

It's a voltage doubler drawn as a bridge.

Not the normal way of putting it on paper.
