    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.

    Another Hotel long gone!!!!. A hotel, name I can't remember was in the middle of the Preluna buiding. It was demolished about 20 years ago, when the Preluna was extended. I cant find any pictures of it, but I do remember if looked so much of "old" Sliema. Anybody remember it ?

    Thanks for the reply Keith. I was just curious as it was owned by a family member in the 50's and early '60's. I think only tourists or people who were old enough to have a drink at the hotel's bar would remember it.

    @Ann Galea I was in Sliema 62-65 and 67-70, and I've never heard of that hotel.

    @Carol Ex they were keeping the facade and building behind it, although the building was taller than the facade.

    Does anyone who was living in Sliema in the 1950's or 1960's remember the City Gem Hotel?
