View from the Preluna Hotel
5sep19--A Thank You to our hosts, 'Quick Lets' Buy - Rent - Malta / Real Estate Agent in Sliema, Malta & 'Zanzi Homes' - Sliema, for sponsoring this 'live-cam' view of Sliema Tigné Seafront, Malta, fantastic.
Hello Peter, yes, your original message on Triton has disappeared for some strange reason. Glad you got your full screen back.
@Ann GaleaYes thank you Ann. I did get your message and yes I can get full screen when logged in. My comment on the Triton must have been inappropiate because it was immediately deleted.
Peter Keddie, I replied to your message regarding "full screen" on the Triton Fountain cam. Just thought I'd leave a note here in case you missed it. Hope it helps !
My wife and I ate in the "Lean-to" attached to Fortizza last year, it was not very nice. When I asked to use the toilets I was ushered into Fortizza itself, which was amazing. I asked if we could it in there next time we came for a meal but was told no, only in the lean-to. Shame.
@BarbaraIf you mean the camera that looks downhill past the "Roman Baths" on the left, it is currently obscured by the crane in the foreground so there would be little point to having it switched on.
What has happened to the Tower road traffic cam it never stays on for long.
Peter, thank you for trying to look it up. Not sure which one of the three schools he would have been at but if I find out anything more I will let you know. Thanks again !
@Ann GaleaThat's a pity. You sparked my interest and I surfed the web, but unfortunately there is very little information regarding the army schools in Malta, except that there were 3 of them. However, I did find that one of the schools now lies under the Tigne Point shopping arcade and its annexe lies under the very hotels you are looking at on this webcam. Perhaps this was the school your uncle worked at.
Hello again Peter. Unfortunately I didn't find out anything more about my uncle. Sadly he passed away years ago but I do recall him reminiscing about the time he spent as secretary at the British Army school. He used to refer to it as "the best place to work". Thanks for asking though.
@Dave SMy apologies Dave. I thought Ann Galea was asking about the tent at the bottom left of camera. As you rightly say, the Fortizza is a good 75m further on. My apologies again for misinterpreting your post.
I never mentioned the cafe at the left of the cam, and find good place to eat, my post was always about said Restaurant , as reported in Times of Malta; and that must be all of 75M to the left on the cam.
@Ann GaleaHello again Ann. I beg to differ with Dave S. The "Fortizza" (the listed building David refers to) is much further along the promenade to the left, so the tent at bottom left of camera cannot refer to it. Did you find out about your uncle?
Thanks very much for that info Dave. I can see how the addition to that 19th century building would seem out of place and it was probably done in a hurry too. This area seems too congested and "modern" now with all the construction that's happening. A very different Malta from the one I remember more than 25 years ago.
