13 Malta then and now images to make you weep

If you saw a photo of your street from 60 years ago, would you recognise it?

There are areas of Malta which have changed beyond all recognition in recent years.

This brand new collection of then-and-now images will either amaze you or leave you wanting to cry.

They were compiled by history enthusiast Joe Scicluna from Qormi, using nostalgic photos from our award-winning Bay Retro page on Facebook.

Joe said: ‘When I saw these amazing early photographs, I set out to compare them with my own photos.

‘Some photos were taken from the very same angle, others from a similar point of view, and the result is a remarkable showcase of changes and similarities alike.’

Take a look for yourself.
