50s to 90s Kuwait

Dawood Treasury

Just found out about this site called the Dawood Treasury which contains vintage articles from old newspapers. They have a section for Kuwait (where I got the ad above from) and also sections for other neighboring countries. I think the site is still getting updated so it should be interesting once they add a lot more stuff. [Link]

Thanks e7mood

Hi R! I’ve been trying to find the bookshop in the al-Mubarakiya for over 4 years now (I’ve gotten hopelessly lost so many times trying to find it, and no-one knows where it is), with no luck – do you know where it is? I bought some books from them when they had a stall at AUK in early 2010 and LOVED it – the guy mentioned they would open in March that year but I’ve had no clues since then lol – if you have any news I’d love it!! 🙂 Thanks

Dear Sirs,
I am the CEO of the West End Watch Co. based in Switzerland.
The W inside of the star with 6 branches was the old logo of the brand. It was graphically particularly well adapted to host the letter “W”. It has no link at all with the Sionism which was born after the brand. The brand was first active on the Indian market, where such cross or the Swastika (misused by Nazis) were millenary symbols. It is a lack of historical culture to reduce such symbols to their 19th century interpretation. In the 1930s, the brand changed the logo to a W in a circle to avoid a ban from its important Middle-East markets.
I hope that the matter is now cleared.
With thanks for your interest in our 125 year-old brand and best regards from Switzerland.
