Ok, in view of the fact that TonyR cannot upload images at this time. Louis Emond (aka SeaMaster) has very kindly stepped in and provided the following image for this next Quiz.

As usual, the question is: "What is the name of this flying boat"??......

Ok then, what we have here is the Heath 2B.

From Aerofiles:
1910: (Edward Bayard) Heath Aerial Vehicle Co, Chicago IL, as a parts supply house. 1912: Acquired Bates Aeroplane Co and renamed Heath Aircraft Co Inc, 1721 Sedgwick St, Chicago; c.1927: 2856 Broadway, Chicago. 1931: Reorganized as International Aircraft Corp, Niles MI, after Ed Heath was killed in crash of a test model; planes produced 1933-35 were known as International-Heath. 1935: Heath Aviation Co (Howard Anthony), Benton Harbor MI; after WW2 became Heath Electronics (mfr Heath-Kit).

2-B 1913 = Heath sales literature, from 1913-16, offered a two-cylinder engined Model 2B flying boat for $1,500, with a wheeled version of it available for $1,450, and there was also a Heath Model 2B Tractor Biplane with a six-cylinder Anzani air-cooled engine around 1918, which is probably the version shown in my photo.
