The answer is: Deák tér (Deák square) in Budapest’s city center in 1912. On the opposite side you can see the Anker-palota (Anker palace), built between 1908 and 1910 based on the plans by Ignác Alpár. The building was the Hungarian headquarters of the Vienna-based insurance company ‘Anker Biztosító Társaság’.
