This was a 1924 Austrian passenger plane (1 pilot in the open air and two passengers in an enclosed cabin). It was the WW I UFAG C.I 161.100 rebuilt by the Vienna Zentral Aviatik und Automobil Ges.m.b.H. (ZAAG) to a design of their chief pilot Karl Ehrlich. Austrian civil registration A-18.

There were no other Ehrlich designs, and no other ZAAG types.

I don't know if the V in ZAAG Ehrlich V means "five" or "vee". In any event there were no "one","two", ...

Ing. Karl Ehrlich was a well-known Austrian glider pilot in the immediate post-WWI period.

The appearance of this biplane is very German/Austrian from the immediate post-WWI period.

The three-view drawing seems to me a rather crude rendering of the 1919 Lohner Express I. This was the original 1918 Lohner 10.23 prototype (Lohner AC) rebuilt with an enclosed cabin for two passengers.

The Express I made some flights from Austria to Ukraine in the summer of 1919, and it was probably sold to the Ukrainian government. Eventually the Inter-Allied Aeronautical Commission of Control confiscated the plane bfore it could be handed over to the Ukrainians. The Express I eventually ended up in Switzerland.

More details can be found in Andersson/Sanger, Retribution and Recovery (2014).

Below a more detailed three-view drawing of the Express I from Keimel, Luftfahrzeugbau in Österreich (2003), p. 215.
