Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation. Petrol company drawing.

Egypt, General Petroleum, [1960s].

Original black-and-white pen and ink drawing. 137 x 157 mm on 170 x 238 mm (sheet). Mounted on cardboard (183 x 257 mm).


Unique drawing of a General Petroleum service station, featuring a car on a hydraulic lift and a coporate signpost on the street. With 2 company logos cut out from a magazine and pasted to the signpost and to the lower left corner of the drawing. A jagged element resembling an oil blot in the otherwise blank part above the service station was presumably intended for a caption but lacks any lettering, suggesting that the drawing was left unfinished.

A little creased. Backing cardboard somewhat worn with fragments of handwritten Arabic script in blue and green on the reverse.
