    I was born just some meters away from the Gang. My parents , as a boy, used to tell me 'if you are naughty the police will tie you to the gang , and later put you up there naked to receive the insults from passers by. Later I was told that very truly criminals were exposed there by the Knights. Also re the GUT I was warned ( like Maria, ) that I should never pass through the gut for I might be picked up by the sailors and taken on board for good. So I obeyed .Later I discovered that it was a place for prostitution. The 'battles' Maria mentioned were between Maltese and Sailors/Marines or between Sailors and Marines sometimes even between Malta Police and Military Police for various reasons. Maybe one day Straight street will rise again with Fish restaurants.

  3. I suppose you could say the Gut always had fish restaurants, especially for those who liked eating fish pie..insert a smiley
  4. Valletta makes Dog Sh1t City look good
