Triton Fountain 2170 viewsFor those who are unaware of the livecam on the roof of The Phoenicia I have been trying unsuccessfully to include a link here, but if you Google "Live Cam Floriana - The Triton Fountain" you will find it. There are other views, too - Tigne, St George's Square, Grand harbour etc.Ivan

The entrance to the Pit 2005163 viewsI took this photo when we went back on the 2005 reunion visit. It was then the Castille Wine Vaults. It was closed at the time but I managed to get in and take some photos which will follow on from this one. Ivan, (author of a previous photo) I hope they are of interest. 1 commentsmikew

A film for April Fools155 viewsBlack Eagle - possibly the lamest film made in Malta (or anywhere), despite Van Damme's and Kosugi's best (or worst) efforts. Not made as a comedy but laughable in every way, redeemed only by the scenery (but of course no extras available from TH to save the day), 1988.

Triton Fountain 1150 viewsNot quite sure which album to put this in, but Then and Now seems appropriate as we are all no doubt familiar with how the area around the fountain used to look, and here it is now. The shot is a screen grab from the livecam mounted on top of The Phoenicia. What an improvement! And with a new twist on the selfie, that's my wife and I sitting on the low wall, bottom right. Ivan
