The Construction of the Kossuth Bridge in Budapest

The devastation of the world war swept over the capital of Hungary and the fury of the enemy deprived the " Queen of the Danube " of all her beautiful and world famous bridges, which are shown in Figs. 1 and 2. When the siege of the city ended about the middle of February, 1945, and the tortured inhabitants could creep out from beneath the ruins of their homes, the capital was cut in two, because the most simple means of communication were in ruins.
