Very interesting .. Romania in the early and mid 20th century was Europe's largest oil producer excluding the Soviet Union. Constanta if I recall is Romania's center of oil production it's cool to see what i'm assuming are effects of the "oil boom". I've also heard that Bucharest was one of the most cosmopolitan cities in central or eastern Europe during the interwar years unfortunately Nicolae Ceaușescu fancied himself an urban planner and knocked down 1/4 of the old city to make way for the 2nd largest administration building in the world (planned to be the largest but the revolution of 1989 halted construction).

^^ The oil centers were Bucharest, Constanta and Ploiesti. In the 30s the main industries were focused on trains, trams and cars. Also agriculture had a big part in the economy. A big part in the economy had the many US companies and the Romanian-US joint ventures

At the end of 1800s on a field outside Bucharest (that was used for public executions) they started to organise the cities weekend fair. In the 20s on the site is build a permanent fun park called Luna Park. It had the 1st roller coaster in Romania.













In 1936 the park is demolished to make space for the largest shopping center in Romania. It was planed to be executed in 3 stages: shopping center, storage area and an office tower wit a sky bar. Saldy due to WW2 and communism only the 1st 2 stages of the shopping center were finished and thet functioned only as a market. The building has a gorund surface of 24.000 sqm / 258.333 sqf







Arch. were Horia Creanga and Haralamb Georgescu, known in USA as Harlan Georgesco. He left Romania for USA in 1947 and established itself as an architect in Palm Springs CA.

I'm digging this one the juxtaposition of the modern art-deco high-rises make with the gilded age - early 20th century buildings of the intersection in the foreground.

^^Finished in 1934, at 52,5 m it was the highest building in Bucharest untill the 70s. It was built after the plans of dutch architect Edmond Algi. To build this and another 4 smaller phone exchanges the romanian government took a loan from the US trust American Morgan and created a joint venture with International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation. The new company was SART - Romanian Telephone Company Inc.

At the top floor was a nice restaurant, sadly i couldn't find any pics of it.

Wow!

I am mesmerized by your photographs of Romania Harry's Place.

Do you have a vintage photograph of the abandoned Constanta Casino on the Black Sea? ..........................It has always been one of my favorites.

Thanks Harry's Place.

The large rounded window in the Constanta Casino always reminds me of fanned peacock feathers. [top foto]

It's a mix of art deco, modernist, bauhaus sometimes with some mediteranean revival or romanian traditional elements.
