The photo was part of a souvenir pack.
In an old snap uploaded to social media by history enthusiast John C. Navarro, one really gets to see the drastic changes that Senglea’s harbour has gone through over the years…
The photo, which came as part of a souvenir pack (a very popular item in the 1930s), is believed to have been snapped way back in 1932 – that’s almost 90 years ago!
The harbour, although almost unrecognisable, is shown to be brimming with activity. Perhaps one of the most notable sights is a small boat that used to take people to Birgu.
People can even be seen sitting on a long line of benches, appreciating the Senglea waterfront’s view.
A huge British Royal Navy battleship stands tall in the photo’s background – a sight which was not uncommon back then!
A Facebook user by the name of Victor Pulis commented on the post to note that one of the boys pictured is none other than Joe Attard Kingswell – the future head of the General Workers Union and editor of It-Torca.
Things sure have changed in 90 years!
