10 incredible images of Malta in the 1950s


A photo album containing never-before-seen shots of Malta has been unearthed around 70 years after they were taken.

The remarkable images show life in Malta in the late 1950s.

There is a snap of the King’s Gate entrance to Valletta.

Two more pictures show people fishing at the edge of the Grand Harbour.

Other images depict the Royal Navy at home in Malta as well as Marsaxlokk Bay, Rabat, Pieta and HMS St Angelo in Malta’s famous Grand Harbour.

The images were discovered by photography enthusiast Max Sloan at an auction of nostalgic photos from across the British Empire.

He said: ‘A while ago I bought a couple of boxes of photo books at an auction in Canada.

‘In the same lot was a box of bric-a-brac which I had little interest in, but when I got home and emptied out the contents I found two little boxes of postcard sized black and white photographs buried at the bottom.

‘They were all taken in Malta and Gozo between 1957 and 1959.

‘All the pictures are unpublished. They look like they were privately taken so would be unlikely to have been reprinted or published anywhere.’

Until now!
