Msida Creek Summer 1966707 viewsTaken from the balcony of our flat, St Nicholas flats, Ta'Xbiex Wharf in the summer of 1966. I believe that the rough track at the front of those flats is now a main road over to Gzira! The rough ground in front of the flats was alive with aggressive black ants. Boy did I have fun with them.1 commentsChris Howells
