The Sign that Says It All

Day three of my Portland series; One of the most recognized signs in Portland is this one, which is located at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. The 65-ft high sign used to read "Paramount", but when the name of the building changed from The Paramount to "The Schnitz" (as it is commonly referred to) in 1984, it was changed to read "Portland". This site has some old photos of the sign before the change.
