Admiral Miklos Horthy (1868-1946) was the wartime Regent of Hungary from 1920 to 1944.
"BSzKRT" was the Budapest Street Car Corporation, a privately owned company before the war. It was nationalized by the government after the war and this leaflet is meant to convey the great strides in salary and benefits that the Communist Party can provide for workers.
