AIOC Cartoon by David Low

David Low cartoon from July 1951 comments on Mussadeq's take-over of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. His hopes that the nationalized company would run happily under Persian staff was to be disappointed in the short term at least. Refineries ran down and Persia's vital income from oil exports slowed to a trickle.
