Wow! 71-year-old photo shows the Azure Window in Dwejra like you’ve never seen it before
Nowadays, you can only see what remains from the window by diving in the depths of the ocean.
A photo shared Gianluca Agius on the Nostalgia Facebook page ‘Malta Lura fil Passat’, shows the now collapsed Dwejra Azure Window unlike you’ve ever seen it before. The photo was taken by his grandfather in 1972.
The natural and incredibly magnificent phenomenon that was the Azure Window, collapsed in 2017 after a huge storm.
But even before it collapsed, many remember the arch being significantly thin unlike this photo taken in 1952, which has quite the thick arch.

The window is estimated to have formed sometime around the year 1830. Throughout those years, it experienced years of erosion from the many storms it saw.
The arch kept get thinner and thinner until it finally gave out on that faithful day, six years ago.
