Pestbuda rarely reveals behind-the-scenes secrets of their editorial staff, now they make an exception: when researching the past of Budapest, journalists often look for information or photos in the Tolnai Világlapja newspaper. The first issue of the newspaper was published 120 years ago, on 28 September 1901. Its founder, Simon Tolnai, built his huge press empire from scratch, centred first in the demolished Orczy House on Károly Boulevard and then in Dohány Street. The latter still stands today, operating as an office building.

Thirty years ago, a new telephone exchange in Csepel with 18,000 lines was a huge step forward. Nevertheless, it seemed that it would only be possible to connect half of the flats in the city with phone lines by 2000.
