Images shared by the owner of Beachaven Malta highlight prices as they were back in 1977, giving us a quick glimpse at how different a meal or a quick snack would have cost.
The receipts are dated to 12/9/77 and 17/9/77, and have various food items ranging from spaghetti, sword fish, pork chops, omelettes and even coffee and tea.
The prices were of course listed in ‘Liri Maltin’, with the sword fish sold at 1 Lm and 30 cents.

3 plates of spaghetti were listed down as 1 Lm and 50 cents, with the other receipt showing that just one plate costing around 55c.
1 can of cola cost 10c, with 6 cups of coffee and/or tea priced at around 1 Lm and 5 cents.
A big meal consisting of 3 spaghetti, 1 swordfish, 2 ‘lampuki’, 1 pork chop, 1 plain omelette, 3 bacon and tomato omelettes and drinks cost around 18.50 LM, including a service charge off 1.75 Lm.
