These Malta then-and-now pictures will shock you

If you saw your street as it was around 80 years ago, would you recognise it?

Maltese history fan Joe Scicluna from Qormi has taken Bay Retro images of some of Malta’s best-known landmarks as they were in the 1900s and then compared to how they look now.

The results are amazing.

Some locations including Floriana, Luqa, Mellieha and Marsaxlokk are barely recognisable.

Take a look for yourself.
