I'm pretty sure that it's not a Sopwith. The Tabloid has single-bay wings with square-cut tipes and plenty of dihedral. The mystery plane has multi-bay wings (do those inners count as cabanes or full struts?). The wingtips are ellipical and there appears to be anhedral on the upper wing.

Tail shapes and fuselage proportions are quite different too. The mystery continues ...

I'm hoping it's not some experimental one-off (like so many from the time), or at least I'm hoping its well-documented (even so many later projects weren't well documented forcing them into obscurity)
