Details of the important article on Muscat by Alleman
This magazine is a fantastic source on Muscat and surroundings with over 20 (!) good photo illustrations dating from 1898 and published in 1901. The large article covering several pages has been written by Emile Allemann who worked for the French navy and the fine photos have also been taken by him. The article and photos give an excellent impression of Muscat and its surroundings at the end of the 19th century!
