Friday 14 Aug 2009: The Hollywood sign
The famous Hollywood-sign in the hills above Los Angeles originally read "Hollywoodland" when it was erected in 1923 as an advertisement for the Hollywoodland real estate project and it was intended to last for about 18 months. In 1949 the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce had the sign restored and the last four letters removed, so the sign would read "Hollywood".
