Remarkable photos show Valletta life 100 years ago
Just one photo can say so much about the history of a city and its people.
These remarkable pictures were taken more than 100 years ago by Valletta-based photographer Salvatore Lorenzo Cassar.
What emerges are glimpses of every day life Malta at the time – horse carts making deliveries, men pushing a barrow, a boy selling that day’s newspaper.
His work provides us with a visual record of Valletta, with its Grand Harbour and glorious but much-missed Royal Opera House in 1914.
What’s amazing is how much the city has changed but in some ways looks pretty much the same.
