Gladding, McBean & Co.

Gladding, McBean & Co. Warehouse, 1912

Gladding, McBean began manufacturing clay sewer pipe in California in 1875. Sometime in the early 20th Century they used this warehouse at 79 SE Taylor, the same building as my last post. Walk around to the building's east side and you can see this, as well as another old sign extending the width of the building just below the Gladding, McBean sign. I can make out "PORTLAND WAREHOUSE" but the rest is lost to decay.
