These Malta then-and-now pictures will shock you

If you saw your street as it was 100 years ago, would you recognise it?

History fan Joe Scicluna from Qormi has combined Bay Retro images of some of Malta’s best-known landmarks as they were in the 1900s compared to how they are now – and the results are amazing.

Some locations including Birkirkara, Zabbar, Pieta, Valletta and Ta’ Xbiex are barely recognisable.

Take a look for yourself.
