Strait Street, Valletta

9T2A1497If places could speak this would have a few mighty tales. The old Strait Street in the heart of Valletta is full of closed dance halls, bars and brothels. This was where sailors and servicemen from the English and US Navies came to spend their money and have a bon time. The bars, the old band stages and the balconies where perfumed ladies proffered remain covered in a fine layer of dust. This fabulous piece of street art captures the sense of those heady days.
