It was operational until at least 1967 (when I left Portsmouth) the exact date of closure/demolition is not known to me. It also housed “The Little Theater of Portsmouth” a stage company. I saw my first stage play there.

There may be photos of Elco in the library. It actually sat on the road to the back of this pic to left of the red brick building.
