Last week’s Remember When mystery photo, below left, shows the Mohawk service station and petroleum depot in the 1930s, located on Tracy’s western edge on 11th Street just west of the Southern Pacific tracks.
The station and wholesale petroleum depot were operated by Audrey Glover, who had come to Tracy in 1935 from the Galt area. He later earned a medical degree from Loma University School of Medicine and practiced medicine in Tracy for a number of years.
Yvonne Glover-Miller, daughter of Dr. A.R. Glover, remembered the petroleum facility. She recalled as a girl during World War II waving to troops in trains headed to the Bay Area on the nearby Southern Pacific tracks.
Art Serpa and John Cloke identified the station and owner. Cloke noted that a photo of another location of what became Glover Oil Co. appears on the cover of Glover’s autobiography, “Glover.”
