View of a Mobil gasoline station, possibly located on the intersection of Colorado Blvd. and Glenoaks Blvd., in the city of Glendale. Several cars can be seen parked around the perimeter of the gas station. Across the street on the left, Foster's Old Fashion Freeze fast-food restaurant can be seen. And on the right of the gas station, an advertisement for Jesse E. Smith Co. Ford Body Shop is painted on the side of a building. Foster's Freeze is a chain of fast-food restaurants best known for its soft-serve milkshakes, cones, and a line of other soft serve desserts, as well as a variety of foods; it was founded by George Foster in 1946. Mobil was a major American oil company that merged with Exxon in 1999 to form ExxonMobil. Today, Mobil continues as a major brand name within the combined company. Glendale was incorporated as a city in 1906, consisting of 1,486 acres. With population growing from 13,756 in 1920 to 62,736 in 1930, Glendale called itself "The Fastest Growing City in America". By the new millennium, Glendale's population was approximately 195,000.
