This tower, with its splendid blue clock face, is part of the building that now houses the Malta Maritime Museum. This large building sits on the Birgu waterfront and was originally built as the Royal Naval Bakery, part of the Victualling Yard of the Malta Dockyard.
It was built between 1842 and 1845. Designed by the architect William Scamp, its elegant façade was reportedly inspired by Windsor Castle. I’m not entirely sure I see the likeness.
Time to say goodbye to July Blues. A big thank you goes to Becky for hosting her quarterly square challenge – it was fun, as ever, and truly colourful.
