FIGURE 2.8 Following the first oil export in 1949, Doha entered a period of rapid growth in the 1950s. The first major land reclamation activities that would dramatically alter the coastline took place from 1952 to 1956. In 1952, the first official public school was opened, followed, in 1954, by public access to clean water. The Department of Public Health was established in the same year, and two dental clinics and three pharmacies were opened for the public. The first school for girls was opened in 1955 with 50 students enrolled. The first electricity grid and State hospital were both established in 1957; and in 1959, major arterial roads were built to connect the historic city with several new development areas and town centers, and the oil fields. Doha's population grew seven-fold from 1950 to 1960. However, it has to be noted that from the time oil was discovered in Doha, the subsequent urban growth and modernization took a decade to become fully manifest and start changing the city.
