I'm trying to identify this plane from an old family photograph. Is it possibly a DH4? photo

The tail number doesn't bring any success (well, at least not that I can find). Any info would be much appreciated.

According to worldmilitair.com (.pdf), serial E8557 was assigned to an Airco DH.9A, a light bomber used by the newly formed Royal Air Force starting in the final months of World War 1.
