Charles Quincy Goodhue (1835-1910), a Portland amateur artist, spent the last 20 years of his life sketching Portland as it looked before the fire of 1866.

This drawing depicts "Alice Greele's Tavern in 1775." Widow Greele's (or Grele) Tavern served as a popular meeting place during the American Revolution.

The building was small for a tavern, one story and long, and located on the east corner of Congress and Hampshire Streets in Portland.
