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.
A noon-hour Downtown photo walk. Highlights include the 360 Main Street re-cladding, which is coming along quite nicely, and the great new signage at the McKim Building (formerly the Crocus Building, and the Ashdown Hardware Store before that).
A walk down Main from Inkster to Kingsbury (or thereabouts).
A few photos from a sunny Monday morning back in May.
