Coloured lithographic print by G Hawkins Jnr. 'View of the suspension bridge now erected over the river Danube at Pesth in Hungary, designed and built under the direction of W Tierney Clark, Civil Engineer'. William Tierney Clark (1783-1852) designed a number of suspension bridges, of which this one over the Danube in Budapest is the largest and probably the best known example. It was completed in 1849. The bridge was still in use at the start of the 21st century. Printed by Day & Son, London.
