The Municipality (Baladiya) tweeted this photo of Qatar yesterday, saying, as translated into English:

“Qatar is a gift from our forefathers, so let’s keep it safe and work hard to develop and improve it.”

It’s not clear what year the photo was taken Baladiya said the photo was taken in the 1960s. One tweeter sent the shot to Doha News in response to complaints about increasing traffic. Her advice was to have patience:

“Rome wasn’t built in one day.”
