Photographer's Note

The beautifully renovated Lu Lu Mosque in Dhahran. The mosque was originally built in 1951 (1371 AH) by two Pakistani employees of Aramco using their own time and resources. It was recently excavated and renovated by the company. The mosque has a beautiful surrounding garden with lamp-post lighted pathways.

The community of Dhahran is composed of two sections: Dhahran main camp and Dhahran Hills. These two sections are separated by Dhahran's 27-hole Rolling Hills golf course and club house. The term 'camp' has stuck with Dhahran and the other communities, since its early development in the 1930s and 1940s. However, in reality, Dhahran is a community with tree-lined streets, stone houses and grass lawns. Most homes in the main camp are constructed of brick or fieldstone, and many have undergone recent modernization. There are also some newer, modular homes in this area. The gardens and landscaped areas of these homes are surprisingly green with large shade trees and flowering bougainvillea and oleanders.
