This is an original sealed piece of the "Hollywoodland" sign that was erected in 1923.It stood five stories high and stretched over a city block long. It was the largest sign in the world and became one of America's best-loved landmarks! Originally the sign was illuminated by 4000 20-watt light bulbs spaced 8 inches apart. When lit at night it could be seen for 50 miles. In 1949 a new letter "H" was erected and the last four letters (LAND) were removed. The symbol of the movie industry now proudly reads "Hollywood". From the war years to 1978 the sign degenerated to a sad relic of what it once was. Many committees, film stars and promoters tried to "Save the Sign, to no avail. In 1973 the Cultural Heritage Board declared the old Hollywood sign an historical monument number 111. In 1978 Alice Cooper, Hugh Hefner, Gene Audry and other concerned individuals raised $27,700 per letter to erect the new sign which now stands as proudly as the original on Mt. Lee overlooking Tinnseltown. "Piece of a Hollywood Legend" it was the epitome of the city it stood over for 55 years...it promised a make-believe land where sometimes dreams do come true! The one I have is number 2540 of an unknown number. It has a City of Hollywood Chamber of Commerce embossed gold seal and it is signed. It was constructed in 1980 by Hank Berger Enterprises, inc., Hollywood, California, Designed by V.M. Bickmore. The above information was taken off the print. There is more detail.
