Wyoming United States USA Date:1919 Duration:2 min 31 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A truck in the U.S. Army 1919 motor convoy, across America, is seen with its right rear wheel broken through the road bed of a wooden bridge across a dry creek, in Whyoming. The truck was heavily laden, carrying a Holt tractor in its bed. Soldiers stand about as an operator backs the tractor out of the truck. They then examine the situation. Closeup of the truck wheel broken through wooden floor boards of the bridge. They hook the rear of the truck to the Holt tractor and pull it out of the hole in the bridge. Next, the convoy is seen stopped at the bridge and for a long way in the distance, as soldiers lay coiled planking (sort of pre-fabricated corduroy road) at the dry creek to facilitate passage by trucks around the wooden bridge. A truck begins to drive up the embankment on the planking, with difficulty, as soldiers help push it. Scene shifts to two trucks slowly climbing a narrow dirt road.
