The Last Days of the Race Track
Tamás Dezso... The Last Days of the Race Track at the Mai Manó Gallery of the Hungarian House of Photography. "...When it was opened in 1933, the Race Track in Kerepesi Street was the most modern and beautiful racecourse in Europe. A french investor will build a 3-story shopping center of 30.000 square meters in its place. During its 71 years, the Race Track saw several booms and went through many difficulties. Its fate was sealed in 1989, when the sudden spread of other types of gambling led to a decrease in visitors, and horce racing could not keep abreast of the times. Hungary is the only country when horce racing is not profitable." More at Tamás Dezso Photographer.
