The McBreen building was a relic of Portland’s beautiful cast iron architectural past. Built in the 1883 at 65 Morrison street, the building was converted from a general store to a theater sometime during the early 20th century. This sign, visible in the 1970 photograph in this listing, hung outside the building from the early days of the Gaiety and round-up theater until it was demolished in 1978.
