It's been a while sine I last received a postcard from Malta, so this card came as a real refreshment. Alfred writes that the postcard represents one of the capital's landmark - Portes des Bomber. It was the outer gate to the capital city Valletta, built in 1721 by Ramon Perellos. The gate originally had a single archway with a drawbridge and ditch, but the second archway was added in 1868 during the governorship of General Sir Patrick Grand. Alfred also writes that the cute old buses were replaced by usual long buses. Such a shame, this one looks so lovely! Thanks, Alfred!
