An automobile carrying authorities crossing a deck bridge designed in Argentina (built in Belgium). Although the stream is narrow it presents an obstacle to carts and vehicles trying to cross. Military bridges at the time were built with decks that could bear variable weights constructed on pontoons or trestles. The pontoons were used in wide and deep-water courses, but in this kind of obstacles trestles that supported with their ridge poles the deck constructed with wooden planks were used.

These trucks are veterans of WWI. They fought in the French Army as troop transport. In the post-war, they were taken to Argentina as surplus for the civil sector, as seen in the advertisement. The Argentine Army may have used them for the Engineer Corps.
