A strange looking aircraft. British, I believe but with a bit of french built into it.

You don't seem to be having much luck with this one. I was amazed to learn that modifications were carried out on the aircraft to extend the lower wings until they were nearly as great in span as the upper surfaces and outer pairs of interplane struts were added.

My Boss tells me it is a Grahame-White Lizzie/Tea Tray (and who am I to argue with her )
I certainly would not have fancied flying it in its original (pictured) configuration

If correct - boring old OH I am afraid.

It looks to have some affinity with the 1914 Hall biplane which, according to Jane, was:

'An interesting example of the combination of the Caudron wing structure with an ordinary fuselage'.

At last.

longer ron has identified the aeroplane but has sadly called OH.

However, it is obvious that MReyn knew the answer at post #1189 and #1195, so I think he should have the next shot.

Thanks Dook. I will find something soon. I should add though there another photograph of Graham-Whites Lizzie on the fron cover of Peter Lewis's book British Aircraft 1809-1914 published by Putnam.
