Paceville nostalgia: update

Those of you who enjoyed my post about Paceville when things were just starting to happen in the late ’80s/early ’90s will remember that it included a Youtube link to a video that beautifully captured the zeitgeist of the era.

Everyone was disappointed when the owner of the video mysteriously took offence that I had linked to his channel and promptly switched the video to private. Incidentally, I suppose that’s a taster of what is likely to happen should ACTA come to pass – more about that here.

But good news.  The owner of the video must have had a change of heart because a friend (thank you!) told me that it’s now on Facebook and available to the public on the awesome St. Julians Malta page. To view it, click here.

The page is extremely popular and includes a lot of interesting photos of the area both in the present day and in the past: just in case you missed it, you can click here to join and view. Here is a taster:
