The Point459 viewsNew shopping mall at Tigne.
At least some attempt has been made to preserve its military origins!
The car park underneath is the only place you can hope to find a space these days, at a price.
"Also complete is the football ground on top of The Point, which is due to be handed over, after all the legal certification and paperwork is finished, to Sliema Wanderers, as was promised in the Midi contract with the government."

The Alhambra831 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.

Dunera_1967.jpg
Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 19671479 viewsI am sure that this was the Dunera cruise of early 1967. I was in 3B at the time and this is a scan (took a while to get it down to 250kb!) of a picture that appeared in the Times of Malta.
I cannot name a soul, (apart from me of course! Front row,4 along with head at jaunty angle, book in hand and OMG turn ups!) So if anyone can fill in those names: go for it!
