Hollywoodland

Hollywoodland

The Hollywood sign originally said “Hollywoodland” and was erected in 1923 to advertise a segregated housing development in the hills above the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. It was only designed to be up for about 18 months. By 1978, it had started to deteriorate after years of neglect and was saved twice by the creator of Playboy.
