The first Hungarian silent film was made in 1901 with a view to illustrating the performance of the Uránia popular science company.  The motion picture did not survive, only the pictures published in the contemporary media are available as well as the photographs from which a series of postcards was printed.

Contemporary papers published some series of pictures showing some dances, but as the developed series of photographs turned out to be too tiny, they wisely sent a stand-photographer to the reception who took his own pictures. Luckily enough, the stand-photographer could even capture a photo of Gyula Pekár, the film director popping up in a picture (in one of the satirical Csárdás pictures).     

(Except for the two pictures of the Palotás dance, all pictures are standing photographs.)
