Photographer's Note

A statue of Queen Victoria stands in front of the National Library in Republic Square, a symbol of Malta's colonial past. The British ruled Malta from 1800 after seizing it from the French until the colony was finally granted independence in 1964. Nowadays, the statue of the Queen inaugurated in 1891 to mark the Queen's Golden Jubilee is invariably crowned by a pigeon.
