Satirical print of unknown artist with title: De Commandobrug van Amsterdam naar ‘s Hage, with letterpress text partly in the platemark and 20-line verse: Grootachtige Bruggeman! daar leidt de heele wagen! Is dit een fundament voor zulk een zware vragt (…). Satrirical print regarding the Patriots.

A carriage car with the arms of the prince is pulled by nine horses but plunges into the depth as the bridge is collapsing. In the background the view of Amsterdam.
