Theoretical models can be very helpful in analysing a problem or considering issue from a strategic perspective.
They might usefully be read in association with the page looking at the history of the peninsula. A number of the photographs on this page are taken from the web site of the Qatar Embassy in Washington and are placed here under what I believe to be fair use, permission having been requested.
There are also photographs from the web site of the Diwan al-Amiri in Qatar.
In addition to these I have also been kindly directed Porters five forces in residential construction industry photographs on here and, from there found a link to this site, though you will find a certain amount of repetition on all these sites.
These four sites have many more photographs than I have used here and I recommend them to those with an interest in the country. The first two photographs here, are likely to have been taken from the same imagecaptured in Apriland show an aerial view of the ruined fort at Helwan, situated to the south-east of Zubara.
Also included are photographs taken from a publication of the Qatar History Committee in My intention here is to show as wide a selection of old photographs as I can find in order to present a rounded picture of the immediate past of Qatar by the addition of what I hope will be an appropriate commentary.
More probably, the State will make a concerted effort to obtain and record images from the past as part of its Museums programme. Having said that, throughout these notes there are many of my own photographs scanned from 35mm Kodachrome transparencies I took mainly in the s and s, though they are not all individually dated.
While they are usually not as old as the black and white and sepia images, they are sufficiently distant in time to record something of Qatar prior to its most recent developments. This colour photograph, for instance, was taken in March at al-Zubara and shows what I recall as being the only part of a building of any significance still standing.
In the background can be seen the military fort with its westerly extension to the right, later taken down. Regrettably I have no knowledge about the building and what its use might have been.
This next photograph is also of ruins at Zubara and is said to have been taken in I am not sure if it is the same building as that shown in the colour photograph above but feel it might be as it was the only building of that height at the time I took the photograph inand there are certainly similarities in the detailing of the arch on the right.
I have come across no other photographs of structures in that area of anything approaching this height. As to what purpose the building had, I am unsure, but there is a suggestion in the two photographs which follow it — and are of the same building, but six years later on, taken in — that it is the remains of the house of a pearl merchant.
Whatever its function, the outside of the building illustrates a relatively defensive attitude in the small apertures some distance from the ground, though there do appear to be semi-circular openings at ground level — either doors or, more probably, windows — and located within an arched wall construction as can be seen in the upper photograph which illustrates its interior.
The walls and arches are of masonry construction and, unusually are dressed in order to provide a degree of accuracy and structural coherence not attainable with the regular hasa construction of most of the traditional buildings in the peninsula.
Note that the wall appears to show springing suggesting that there might have been a domed construction, or at least arches — it was difficult to see from the original photograph if the springers were developed laterally to support domes. This aerial photograph is of the old development at Zubara.
It is said to have been taken in the s, but I have no other information that would give a more exact date. However, as we know that the two photographs immediately above were taken inthis photograph must have been taken before then as it can be seen that there is more of the building standing in ruins at the lower centre of the photograph.
A detail of it is shown below. The image is not of high quality as it was photographed directly from the original black and white aerial photograph. Where possible I have put dates to the notes and photographs based on a number of considerations.
Some of the photographs had dates associated with them, usually written on their backs, but I have discovered that they have not always been accurately ascribed. Because of this I have had to make assumptions. Please be aware of this in reading the notes.
Should you have more accurate information I would be grateful if you would let me know so that I can correct or add information where appropriate. Finally, I have found it difficult to make this and other pages logical essays; it will have to move backwards and forwards in time, location and type of building.
My apologies for what follows… Despite the foregoing, it is intended that these supporting notes will constitute a form of essay based solely on the photographs, hopefully tying them together in a manner that makes sense.
There is a warning: I have corrected some previous mistakes I have made and I have corrected mistakes made by others, both in dating and in mirroring some photos as well as attributing incorrectly. It has been difficult dating some of the photographs and I may have made errors despite inspecting them as closely as possible.
Because most images were small, this may have given rise to mistakes on my part. I should also apologise for the uneven quality of the photographs.
I have improved them where possible, but I have not attempted to create a similar look to each as, in doing so, I would have lost detail. While the illustrations here are all photographs, there is some evidence from earlier days of how some of the urbanisations looked.
