Disinfected Letters @ Il-Ħaġar

The Gozo Philatelic Society has set up a new exhibit in their showcase on level -1 at Il-Ħaġar (Pjazza San Ġorġ – Victoria).

A selection of ten letters marked as disinfected at Manoel Island’s Lazaretto, forming part of the Juncker Melitensia collection donated to the GPS, gives an insight into an interesting – but possibly forgotten – aspect of our social history.

The Museum also hosts an old painting depicting the Raising of Lazarus whose cult is long-established in St George’s Basilica.

Opening hours remain 9am-5pm seven days a week.

Il-Gozo Philatelic Society irranġat wirja ġdida fil-vetrina li għandha fil-livell -1 tal-ĦAĠAR (Pjazza San Ġorġ – Victoria). Selezzjoni ta’ għaxar ittri ttimbrati bħala disinfettati l-Lazzarett (Manoel Island), parti mill-kollezzjoni ta’ Melitensia mogħtija lis-Soċjetà Filatelika t’Għawdex, toffri ħarsa tajba lejn aspett interessanti – anki jekk li qed jintesa – tal-istorja soċjali tagħna.

Dan il-Mużew għandu anki pittura qadima tal-Qawmien ta’ Lazzru li tant ilu l-kult tiegħu fil-Bażilika ta’ San Ġorġ.
