Hooray for Hollywoodland

"Land Near Hollywood Sign Up For Sale" (February 13, 2008)

Is nothing sacred?!

The "Hollywoodland" sign, built in 1923 as a real estate promotion, faces devastating defacement. Houses may be built by this world-famous landmark!

Not that this is the first time the sign has gone through changes. In 1949 it was restored: without the "land" part. In 1973 it was declared Los Angeles Cultural-Historical Monument #111. Then, in order to preserve it, the thing was torn down and replaced by all-steel letters.

More about this landmark:
