Notes: Written ten years after Longhurst's Adventure in Oil, it covers some of the same ground. It provides a more "journalistic" perspective of Iran and the Middle-Eastern oil scene at this time. Describing Adadan ... "Oil from the pipeline reached Abadan in 1911, the year in which I was born, so that my lifetime, not a long one, spans the whole history of Abadan, from mudbank village to one of the great cities of Asia, with a population of over 300,000. None could dispute Abadan is a British-Oriental city, with touches of Bombay, New Delhi and the rest : in a sense it is THE monument to Britain in the East, for Britain created not only the city, but the industry that brought the city into being".
