Sidon Training Center.
8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. With a map of the Arabian Peninsula and 2 black-and-white photographic illustrations.
Rare information brochure on the Sidon Training Center operated by Aramco. It informs new American employees on the Center's location and how to get there, describes accomodation facilities ("plain, clean and comfortable, but not luxurious"), and discusses the purpose and scope of their training. The training included an introduction to the Arab world and corporate matters, as well as language courses involving five hours a day of "intensive drill in spoken Arabic".
The illustrations show an aerial view of the ancient town of Sidon, and of the training center with Tapline's tank farm in the background.
With a handwritten note in pencil about the acquisition of Christmas cards: "Pa' comprar tarjetas de Navidad".
