Mobilgas Station 1956, Anaheim

This Mobil station once graced the intersection of Harbor Blvd. and Katella Avenue in Anaheim, not far from the then new Disneyland.

"Commissioned by Mobil Gas to do a mock up for a new type of design for the Mobil Gas image, including the flying horse!
Mobil no doubt picked the team to design and build this station as a marketing scheme to impress the many visitor to Disneyland
and keep them buying Mobil products on the trip back home and where they live."

The Mobil station is visible in this 1956 aerial. (lower right corner)

I'm not sure when this proto-type station was demolished.
