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″
