Hollywoodland, 1923

The Hollywood sign originally said “Hollywoodland” when it was installed in 1923. The last four letters were deleted when the sign was refurbished in 1949.

  1. The sign may have been erected in 1923, but this photo was taken later. Look at the car and the truck -- they're newer than 1923. I can't see the truck well enough to date it, but the car looks like a Model A Ford. The earliest of which were built in 1928.
