Did you know?

After the end of World War I, André Kertész left the army and returned to the job he had before the war as a stockbroker.


Kertész and his future wife, who also worked at the stock exchange, dreamed of quitting their office jobs and going into agriculture. This tranquil image of life in bucolic Budafok, a neighborhood in Budapest known for producing wine and champagne, makes that dream understandable. The buildings shown are wine cellars.
