The new gate to Valletta, or as the Maltese call it acidly: "The no gate", at least it is an improvement to the clunky 1960's lego-gate that replaced this...

A long, long time ago in a simpler age.

The causeway into Valletta...

...under construction, it crosses the great ditch that separates Valletta from <Floriana, originally planned to be a moat from Marsamxett Harbour to Grand Harbour, seems that somebody told them to get real and stop wasting money...

..and the mashup..

The new Opera house rebuilt after the Germans rearranged things here, along with the "stick your finger in your throat" civic centre with "no gate" in the background, (seriously, how can you put such a boxy thing into a historic city core?)

You can still hear pomp and circumstance looking at this picture.

Well done Jay for starting this up again. I like before and after and totally forgot about this thread.

Bit of before and after action. Note the photographers for the first three pictures are unidentified.

Clarence Flour Mill, Hull circa 1900:

Demo on the building started last year (2015). Now today all that is left are piles of bricks:
