Are you sure this is building the bridge? I think you will find it is two submarines wedged against the bridge (which did occur as I have a photo looking from a different direction!)

The photo show a famous WW1 submarine the SM-U35 (note number on conning tower) I guess visiting  Great Yarmouth on route to being scrapped, held against the old Haven Bridge.

The submarine entered service March 1915 sinking plenty of ships with a tonnage of 538,498 (full list enter "SM U - 35 Germany wikipedia in your web browsers" Surrendered 27th October Harwich 1918 & was broken up Blyth 1919 - Source Wiipedia (SM U-35 (Germany))
