Gozo is more meagerly represented than Malta in pre-war photography. This is due most prominently to the fact that British troops had far less of a presence in Gozo. The bulk of early photography survives in the form of postcards which, before the tourist boom of the sixties, appealed almost exclusively to servicemen. This does not mean that old photographs of Gozo cannot be found today, as this book seeks to demonstrate. It does, mean, however, that photographs of pre-war Gozo are difficult to come by. Gozo postcard publishing took place in a sort of 'closed-shop' environment, with only Gozitans placing their wares on the Gozo market. The few and sporadic Gozo cards marketed by non-Gozitans (Maltese or foreigners) formed part of larger print runs of Maltese views, the majority of those featuring Gozo depicted the fishing boats, tal-latini, and little else. This book, the second in the 'Nostalgias' series, includes over two hundred photos of Gozo taken between the 1880s and the 1930s, divided into four chapters: The Islands, People, Events and Gozo Boats.
