Photographer's Note

Dear TE-friends, let me wish you a Merry Christmas with this picture showing the present year Christmas-tree of Miskolc, which was made from 20 tons of firewood. After 6 January, this firewood will be given as a charity for those who need it. Sadly enough, the remote villages of Borsod County do need these charities, despite of the rapid and incredible developments in the county's capital.
In the bg. you can see a part of the old town-hall, which served as the seat of the Law School of Miskolc (a kind of predecessor of the Faculty of Law of Miskolc) before WWII. The statue portrays István (Stephen) Széchenyi, a great statesmen (if not the greatest) of the XIX. century, who - unlike Kossuth -, argued for firm, but well-considered reforms instead of revolutionary ones (or a revolution, which in the end broke out in 1848).
