The history of the iconic Hollywood Sign dates back to 1923 when it was originally erected as a real estate advertisement. Originally spelling out “HOLLYWOODLAND,” the sign was intended to promote a housing development in the Hollywood Hills. Standing at 50 feet tall and 30 feet wide, the sign quickly became a symbol of the burgeoning film industry in Los Angeles. Over the years, the sign underwent several renovations and repairs, including a complete reconstruction in 1978. The “LAND” portion was eventually removed in 1949, leaving the world-famous “HOLLYWOOD” we know today. The sign has been featured in numerous films, television shows, and music videos, cementing its status as an enduring cultural landmark.
