Antique Travelog: Three Views on Budapest

These pictures come to us by way of the archives, and are from about 1900. It would be fascinating to hire an antique car of that era (see our Atlas Motor Grand Touring Car HERE) and step back in time to the very scenes we have here. If you look closely enough, you'll find wonderful details. The horse and buggy era wasn't over, and those street cars sure look quaint. I love the lady's parasol, tipped just so. Our panorama shot boasts a clear view of the River Danube which I would very much like to take in today. The Royal Palace sends a thrill. What this place must have looked like in person back in those times!
For more on the city's layout, along with its major monuments, architecture, and so forth, take a gander at this Wikipedia article.
Happy Time Traveling and--
Happy Creativity!
