HMS Ausonia & Manoel Is. 1959/601286 viewsOther ships are HMS Dainty, parts of HMS Anzio & LST Charles McLeod and a lonely HMS Eastbourne in Sliema Creek. On the island is part of the Leper Hospital, beyond that the Base Supply Office, Fort Manoel, the Diving Centre and Comms Training Centre. To the left of the football pitches is the Canteen (Cinema), in front of which are the tennis courts/roller skating rink of blessed memory.
What a lot of nostalgia!

The Point466 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 Alhambra864 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.
