Your Easy Guide to Malta

Amazing colour images show Malta in the 1950s


These stunning colour photos provide a fascinating glimpse of Malta and Gozo in the 1950s – long before the holiday apartment building boom.

The images feature all manner of goings-on, from the familiar scenes of Castille in Valletta to the more unexpected sight of fields where blocks of flats now stand in Xemxija.

The jubilant Carnival celebrations in Valletta, an amazing view of Mellieha Parish Church and a day at the horse races at Marsa also feature.

Valleta in the 1950s

In one of the most striking photos, you can see the tiny Gozo ferry Imperial Eagle arriving at Mgarr Harbour.

Former RAF photographer Adrian Allain captured the stunning shots while he was stationed in Malta with the Royal Air Force.

The pictures span a period of two years, from 1956 to 1957.
