The Bakáts Square church is one of Miklós Ybl's early masterpieces, which since 1879 has not only been the most important building in the square, but also a symbol of Ferencváros. We have been admiring its renovated exterior for years, and the reconstruction of the interior spaces will be completed in the foreseeable future. Probably only a few people know that the church has been operating since 1822 on the 9th District's best-known square. It was built 200 years ago in such a way that both the commissioner and the users knew that it would only serve the Catholic population of the area until it was replaced by a permanent church. Although the "exchange" was not without difficulties, until 1865 it was the centre of faith for the Catholics of "Franzstadt".

Today it is natural that water flows from the tap, but in the past this was not the case, water was also brought to the houses by vendors so that people could wash, cook, clean themselves, and most importantly, drink. In the 19th century, Pest and Buda began to develop significantly, the local wells and sources could no longer fully satisfy the needs, so water sellers appeared who measured their portage for money.

The heat is raging on the streets of Budapest, and we are greeted by increasingly hot days. During this unusually warm period, we always think of the possibilities of refreshment, and of cooling with the beneficial effect of ice.

Long after the appearance of the first refrigerators, even in the 1950s and 1960s, ice trucks were on the streets of Pest and Buda, as evidenced by contemporary photographs.
