Photo: ‘Flying’ balcony in Sliema

Michael Briguglio

Residents of Pace Street in Sliema were greeted by an unusual sight on Monday morning while a balcony was being installed in one of the buildings.

The photographic snap of the balcony – modelled on a traditional gallarija – being hoisted up into the skies was shot and uploaded onto social media by Michael Briguglio and entitled ‘Stejjer minn Tas-Sliema: Il-gallarija li tgħallmet ittir’ (‘Sliema Stories: The balcony that learned to fly’).
