This photo was taken 16 September 1950 by a U.S. Army Signal Corps photographer. It shows a long line of jeeps and a few trucks from units of the 8th Army and I Corps waiting to cross the Kumho-gang River, a tributary of the Naktong in southern Korea. The river was in flood stage in September 1950 and not fordable. Vehicles had to be ferried across until engineers could build a bridge a few days later.

This photo is quite sharp -- jeep markings and other small details can be seen.
