This websites all in hungarian but you can muddle along with the pictures easily enough, failing that use one of the many fine and indeed accurate online translators such as Google or Babelfish.

Either way the websites a fascinating look at the Hungarian economy, due to the freer trade restrictions imposed by the Hungarian government theres an interesting mix of western and eastern bloc products. Years on the right above the lottery-woman.

I quite like the Hungarian built tape recorders, available in dark green and yellow or red and black, nice thick chunky plastic.

Looks more like industrial equipment than consumer electronics.
