Photograph caption dated March 24, 1960 reads, "Elaborate ceremonies and costly gifts will mark the grand opening of the new Casa de Cascade and Casa De Petrol which will be celebrated Saturday at 14331 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks. This streamline establishment combines a wide range of ultramodern car maintenance services. Opening features include such de luxe gifts as a sleek Owens '15' Fiberglass runabout on a fine boat trailer; a 21" RCA Color TV, and a weekend for two at the Las Vegas Hacienda. Left to right above, smiling happily beside boat gift are Martin Pollard, president of new establishment, with the comely Nardine Nardi, as 'Miss Casa de Cascade.'"
