111 Hollywood Sign

    Newer Older

    The sign has long been a symbol of the glamour associated with Hollywood. Built in the fall of 1923, the sign originally read “HOLLYWOODLAND” and was constructed as advertising for a subdivision at the top of Beachwood Canyon. Each letter is now constructed of steel and is approximately 50 feet high. The length is 450 feet.
