Abstract: Malta was home to the Order of Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem between 1530 and 1798, smoking being introduced into the Mediterranean during that time, around 1600. The Order's small shipyard, or Galle Creek, later became a repair base for the Royal Navy during the British administration (1800-1974), providing dockyard facilities during times of great change such as war in the Crimea and the opening of the Suez Canal. Galley or Dockyard Creek has been at the centre of exchange for goods and ideas throughout these times.
