This plane was probably built around 1912. I do not know by what company built this. Does anyone know what airplane this is?

It looks like a Farman Aviation Works design but many builders copied the Farman designs.

Most Farman aircraft had straight boxed struts but some had staggered wings and slanted struts:

Also similar to the MF.9 http://flyingmachines.ru/Site2/Crafts/Craft28795.htm
