Here are some recent shots of a ghost sign on Main Street for the Breen Motor Co. Ltd. Sadly, the backside of this building was painted black just a few days after these photos were taken—including the old signage.
Ssome info about the company’s founder, Thomas George Breen, can be found here.
Big changes coming to this portion of Downtown over the coming years. Construction is set to begin over the next little while on what will be Winnipeg’s tallest building. Although I don’t usually believe these things until the shovels hit the ground, I’m looking forward to something—anything—taking the place of the 40-year eye-sore on the corner of Main and Graham.
