    Hi DaveS. Yes that was about the time mate.When i was in the Preluna in August, just along the road on the right hand side,out of camera angle, there was some work being carried out. I notice via the camera some trees planted.and was wondering what is there now.

    Hi Chris Bowen, I have continued searching through my pictures of Malta, and have come across, in March 2005 a couple of shots of the Preluna Hotel with a big gap full of scaffolding and new concrete pillars, this is between the Towers and the other section of the hotel. So that was the Promenade hotel space. The remaining wall of the Preluna show the room patterns of the demolished promenade hotel. Looking at the history of The Preluna, I see that that the last major building work was in 2005. Thanks again for reminding me of the hotel name, pity am not allowed to upload the pictures.

    Hi Peter, Merry Christmas to you and everyone else enjoying this cam. That's very interesting information you found out and that there were 2 "City Gem" hotels in Valletta. The one that was owned by a family member in the '50's and early '60's was definitely in Sliema though. Thank you very much for taking the time to look this up though, it's most appreciated. Lovely hearing from you again !

    Hi @ Ann Galea
    Been doing some research. "City Gem" was a blanket term for many hotels around the world who signed up to be covered by the logo. Apparently there were 2 "City Gem" hotels in Valletta, but to date I have not been able to find out their names. Sorry Ann - best I could do.

    Ah ha, so you do remember something called City Gem, Keith ! Although it was a hotel, maybe you just remember the really great restaurant they had !

    I have a photo of me with the shell of the new hotel Preluna in the background. This was taken back end of 1964/beginning of 65. I would post it but don`t know how to.

    Yep, so much has changed, and over the last 30 years the pace of change was much faster. I remember, to the right before you got to the Tinge Court , on the same side. The dance school, the old ladies arriving for the afternoon Tea Dances. And yes walking all around Tinge past the army barracks that were then homes for Maltese people. Think Sliema ran at a slower pace then !!!!!!

    What a change to this place once British Army Tigne Barracks for many years and Sliema was a summer resort for the Valletta residents. Also for houses for the British Service officers family.

    No problem DaveS . I remeber The Promenade did catch fire on one ocassion i was out in Malta. Sadly many of the 3 star hotels have now disappeared.In the Sliema area alone,i remember the Capua Court, Ascot Hotel,Tower Palace, Tigne Court, just a few to mention. Then we had the 5 star holiday in, of which some of it still stands,but is in ruin. A lovely hotel at the time.
