The 'Amsterdamse Bos' is the largest park in Amsterdam.
It was developed in the 1930s as a large job creation project.
The park has 116 bridges, each of them different from the others.
Most of them (64) are designed by the Dutch architect Piet Kramer.
This bridge is one in a series of 5, each with large metal balls as a counterweight. Together they can close off an island in the middle of the park.
Once the padlocks in the middle of the bridge are removed, each side can be lifted, by moving the blue arms. The walking surface of the bridge then gets in a straight-up position. you can see the hinges between the lifting arms.
I lived all my life close to the park and the bridges are closed only when there is an official boat race on the 'Bosbaan', the most famous rowing track in the Netherlands.
On my next walk, I will photograph all the 'Ball-and-chain' bridges in the park. They are all nicely colored in blue red and black.

Did he incidentally die in 1961?
