Neither American nor Menasco.
Most had 4cyl engine, a few variants (of which there were many) had 6cyl units.

Let's just say it's European.
Nailing it down to a single country is too much of a giveaway.
Three different engine types were fitted across all variants.
The type had some export success both within and beyond Europe.

No, no and no!
Manufacturer was one of the great names in earliest aviation. A prolific designer.

Rules One, Two and Three.
Had an apprentice on the ramp for the first time a few years ago. I explained ramp safety including the above. He was, "yeh, yeh, yeh, whatever", and promptly walked through the prop arc.
He lasted about a week with us, sent him back to the hangar.

As to the photo, East European? (looking at the hats).
