This staple Gzira restaurant looks completely unrecognisable in century old photo
Nonetheless, some things remain the same!

Many have visited ‘The Seafood Market Grill by Adam’, one of Gzira’s most beloved restaurant but did you know that a century ago it looked like this?

Even around 100 years ago, the building was still a restaurant operating under the name of ‘King George VI’, appropriately named after the King of Britain at the time who also ruled under Malta.

The photo even depicts some kind of merchant delivering goods to the restaurant in his donkey drawn cart.

The products needed by today’s current restaurant are obviously delivered in a much different way…

On the right-hand side, there’s glimpse of sign advertising the fact that Farsons ‘special-light-ale’ is sold here.

A century later and Farsons is still going strong in Malta. Some things simply never change!
