Scottish bricks found in Agentina.

Many thanks to Cris Pasquali for the following photographs and information.

Cris states ” I found these bricks in the Northern part of my city Rosario (Province of Santa Fe) on the coast of the Parana River. From the late nineteenth century to the mid twentieth century, railway, port and industrial activities were developed in the area. It is currently a new development called Puerto Norte. The Central Argentine Railway was a company of British capitals started in the year 1863″
