This documentary picture from 1956 was taken by the amateur photographer Gyula Nagy, and as can be seen, he was not alone. Nagy exposed nearly forty rolls of film in October 1956. Many photographers destroyed or hid their work to protect themselves after the Revolution was put down. Nagy did neither. He was arrested in 1957 and his photographs were confiscated. Fortunately, 29 rolls of photographs have survived. This one, which he entitled “Körút, tanks, and life in motion”, was taken in Corvin köz [lane] some time around 30 October.
