Photographer's Note

This picture shows a 1972 view of one of the most richly decorated building in downtown Budapest. It was built for a bank in 1907, and survived the bombing and heavy fighting during the Battle of Budapest in WWII. In 1972 it was known as the IBUSZ Palace, named after its main tenant, a state travel agency. Later when IBUSZ moved out of the building it become known as Parisian Court (Párizsi udvar) after the building's glass covered Art Deco shopping mall, considered to be to be Paris inspired. The building was recently sold to a real estate investment firm and will be developed into hotel and luxury apartments, hopefully retaining it outside appearance.
