One And A Half Doors—Budapest, Hungary

(Available only as a 16x24 limited edition print in Lustre Finish. Contact Photographer for more information.)

In 1873, the cities of Buda, and Pest united to become Budapest. The Danube river separated the two until the construction of the Chain Bridge in 1849.

Modernization of Budapest, on an unprecedented scale, began in 1896, including Europe’s first subway system. The resulting concentration of capital and workforce brought intellectual and economic prosperity.

Unfortunately, the 20th Century was not so kind to the city, and much of its former beauty is in need of serious repair.
