The answer: Although the black and white photo was taken in 2012 the bridge is a quite old one. This is the “K-bridge” to the Óbudai sziget which one also known as Hajógyári sziget. The bridge was built in 1955 because the ship-factory of Óbuda needed a side-track. Today, the factory doesn’t use the bridge it is the entrance of the annually held Sziget Festival.
