The benefits of the oil industry for Saudi Arabia

Arabian American Oil Company. Nasri recalls...

New York, Aramco, February 1959.

560 x 430 mm. Folding poster with several black-and-white photographic illustrations.


Third and final edition. Scarce Aramco poster on the benefits of the modern oil industry for Saudi Arabia. Full of nostalgia, it presents a father (Nasri) telling his son about the progress and changes their country saw since the 1930s. His words are underscored by compelling images. Nasri mentions the arrival of the Americans in 1933, the modernization of Dhahran, the completion of the great refinery at Ras Tanura after World War II, and his attending an Aramco training school and working as a driller. In the end, Nasri paints a bright future for his son thanks to the prosperity brought by the Americans over the last 25 years: "But whatever you choose to do, I can tell you that opportunities for doing it are great in our land and will be even greater in the years to come".

Occasional light browning along folding lines.
