Bye Bye Southend

Southend guest house has been part of the 'xatt' (promenade) facade for as long as I remember and that is a good twenty years for sure. Anyways for all of you out there who remember this building it is now being demolished to be replaced by another building so far the rumours are either a nursing home for the elderly or a guest house again.

Birzebbuga's old bus

This is the old bus that used to run from Valletta to Birzebbuga and Kalafrana (the area next to our town). The buses are now yellow and with numbers, but before they where colour coded and the one for our town was blue.

Passion for Buses

A former bus driver Mr Emanuel Muscat who lives in my town kindly let me inside his garage to see him working on these lovely bus models he makes out of wood and other materials. He makes them so neat and to perfection that one obviously has to see them in real life to appreciate his work. Well done to Mr Muscat and thanks.

Petrol and Petroleum where introduced in Malta in the early 1900's and this was after the gas and electric. In 1928 the first few Petrol Stations started to open on our island.
