Budapest - Hungary - 12-14.4.1970
From Wiki: (I have just donated $100 to Wiki seeing I use them for almost every post.)
The Széchenyi Chain Bridge designed by the Englishman William Tierney Clark in 1839 after Count Istvan Szechenyi's initiative in the same year, with construction supervisor Scottish engineer Adam Clark (no relation). It is a larger scale version of William Tierney Clark's earlier Marlow Bridge across the River Thames in Marlow, England. It was funded to a considerable extent by the Greek merchant Georgios Sinas who had considerable financial and land interests in the city and whose name is inscribed on the base of the south western foundation of the bridge on the Buda side.
