WATCH: This Incredible Video From 1928 Proves Just How Much Malta Has Changed - And Remained The Same

An unearthed 14-minute clip shows how previous Maltese generations lived

Malta may sometimes seem like it's stuck in another time, but an incredible 14-minute video of Malta in 1928 will show you just how far the country's come - and how some things will never change.

Titled 'Eventful Malta', the clip has everything you'd expect from a blast from the Maltese past - għonnella included - while giving insight into how previous generations of Maltese people lived.

Kevin Casha, who uploaded the clip online, gave a bit of background to the film: "A 1928 video of Malta by Alfred Vella Gera. He was a talented photographer and film maker who has left us some fascinating insights of a now disappeared Malta."
