What do these lamps belong on?

4 screws/rivets on the front face of the rims and hinge at the top are common features on headlamps of trucks. The steel bodies and socket mounting are late features for gas lamps. Look on late teens and 1920s trucks. Gas lamps were used on many trucks until the mid 1920s when starters and generators along with their electric lighting finally relieved truck drivers of hand cranking the engines equipped with magnetos for ignition.
