Kuwait Airways Tower

On the wave of the oil boom of the 1940s, a national carrier was born in 1954. Initially, Kuwait Airways Company served a limited network. In the 1960s, the national carrier rapidly expanded its route map, and scheduled services to London began three times a week.” According to Modern Architecture Kuwait, the Kuwait Airways Tower–located in Jibla and completed in 1972–was once the tallest building in the city. When the book was published in 2015, it was under demolition. The photos come from here and here.

Alan Gauthier designed posters for Kuwait Airways in the 1960s, which you can see below.

These pieces of memorabilia related to the airline were found on ebay.
