    Banker Solomon Halfon (1790-1862) was one of the Jews who enthusiastically supported the 1848 revolution and political groups that led to The Romanian United Principalities. He established Bank Halfon in 1829 and he was a good friend of Hillel Manoah, another great banker. His son, Solomon I. Halfon, lived in this house and continued dynasty of Romanian Jewish bankers. He was the founder of the Romanian Commercial Bank and received the Officer's Cross. Moreover, King Carol I of Romania named him Commander and his wife became lady of honour in Queen Elizabeth retinue.
    It's true, the house on 26, Lipscani Street (Bucharest) was inspired by prominent people in Romanian history. Regardless of how it looks and what state it is, we have the right to examine these issues. Perhaps in this way we will reform our vision of the old abandoned buildings.
