If you hold down the Option key while launching Photos, it will put up a dialog where you can choose or create a library.

I just held down the option key before launching Photos and there was no dialog. Instead the Photos app opened showing just one picture that was saved after the upgrade.

I held down the Option key until the dialog appeared:

Photos (El Capitan) library selection dialog

The Quit menu item was not available at this point, but closing the window by clicking the red button on the title bar had the same effect.
