- The sign was created as a real-estate advertisement.
It was never meant to become one of the most famous Los Angeles attraction
- The first sign that was created in 1923 was saying “Hollywoodland”
- The sign was scheduled to be razed.
Regular maintenance on the sign stopped when the Hollywoodland real-estate development went under due to the Great Depression. The “H” even toppled over, so that it briefly read “Ollywoodland.”
After ownership of the sign passed to the city in the mid-1940s, the L.A. Recreation and Parks Commission apparently wanted it razed. But the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce stepped in, and in 1949 it removed the last four letters and restored the rest.
A new sign replaced the old one in the 1970s.
