Dazzling colour postcards bring Malta’s past to life

The pace of change in some parts of Malta is so fast, sometimes it’s hard to remember what the island once looked like.

This Bay Retro collection of 10 dazzling colour postcards from the 1950s to the 1980s turns back the clock to the days of the Royal Navy in Malta, when your nanna strolled down Kingsway in Valletta, and your father was probably still at school.

They highlight how some of Malta’s most iconic landmarks have stood the test of time – while some streets, towns and villages have changed dramatically to adapt to the modern era.
