This Week’s Hints to help you along:
So do you know what this aircraft is?

I think this is the Hillery Beachey Exhibition Biplane.
Could be flying from Cicero Flying Field (Chicago).
Maybe around the year 1914.
Earl S. Daugherty the pilot?! (A real wild guess).
That’s the first guess — eight months later. Incorrect, but good attempt. The Hillery Beachey Exhibition Biplane had a pair of wings that were essentially of the same span and chord. This aircraft has a very short lower wing.
The Grahame-White tractor biplane, according to my friend S. Dobberfuhl. Found in “Flight”. Piloted by Louis Noel.
Graham-White “Lizzie” – Morane fuselage with Graham-White type VII wings.
