Photographer's Note

Victoria Gate: Victoria Gate is the main gate that leads from Valletta to the Grand Harbour. It substituted the quaint ‘Porta del Monte’ and was planned during the times of Sir Arthur Borton, who laid the foundation stone in 1884. Victoria gate was opened to the public in 1885. The wider arched entrances provided access to carriages, riders and vehicles, while pedestrians walked through the smaller doors on the sides. The arched entrances are decorated by Malta and Valletta’s coats of arms while the top part is greatly decorated in the British style.
