“The Elisabeth Bridge blown up”
A found postcard. We willingly give it to him/her who would really appreciate it

The Elisabeth Bridge in Budapest was blown up on 18 January 1945 by the retreating German troops. The press of György Klösz and his son (Budapest VII. Vilma királynő út 49, today Városligeti fasor), one of the most important publishers of Hungarian city views was nationalized in 1948. I wonder who sent any postcards and to whom between 1945 and 1948 on the ruins of the bridges in Budapest?
