  1. Hi, nice pics but I have to pick you up on the 2nd pic which may well be the “Hungarian State Treasury” today, but actually was originally built as the Postal Savings Bank (Postatakarékpénztár). Notice the ceramic bees, decorations which were representative of banks and other savings institutions.
