If there is one thing I love about Malta, its the abundance of old doors. The quality of craftsmanship and longevity of some of them put the modern age to shame. This was taken in Valletta, a feast of everything that is old and traditional. Something that is slowly vanishing from the island in a bid to 'move forward!!'
This could have been a door in any Maltese town.. Vittoriosa, Hamrun, San Gwann. To me it epitomises the true Merchants of old, some which I'm pleased to say still have businesses running longer than some of our more famous British counterparts that have since disappeared.

I like the write up and the image a lot. Malta seems to be a heaven for photographers.

Very interesting. Looks better, and lasted longer, than the doors of Jessops! Grin

Hey Steve,,, yes indeed... its a shame what has happened... years of mismanagement and increasing rents havent helped. Thankfully Malta seems to be one of those places that wont (I hope) be taken over by major supermarkets in preference to the family run businesses that still sit in many Maltese streets.
