The Alhambra855 viewsAnyone remember the film?
The Alhambra Cinema was a large and imposing cinema on the seafront at Sliema. The cinema occupied the lower two floors of a large apartment block (surviving), but the foyer and auditorium were gutted and now form the Zara Boutique - a large clothes store.

The Queen's old home in 2005742 viewsI DO hope the Queen didn't ask to visit her old home when she made her anniversary visit - she'd be devastated to see the state it's in. The roof of the flat where I lived in 1957 overlooked the lovely garden we've seen on TV recently. I went back to that area in 2005 after the Verdala reunion and was much saddened to see the Villa Guardamangia is now semi-derelict (note the shutters upstairs). This is happening to many beautiful old and historic buildings.

Hugh Satow is standing on the steps.

Royal Nostalgia479 viewsThe Queen and Prince Philip were given a warm welcome this afternoon shortly after they arrived in Malta on a short private visit coinciding with their sixtieth wedding anniversary.
Hundreds of Maltese and tourists lined Glormu Cassar Avenue in Floriana and applauded as the royal couple was driven past on their way to the Upper Barrakka Gardens where they marked their anniversary by meeting Maltese couples who, like them, were married in 1947. Couples who were married 30 years ago were also presented to the Queen.
