Step back in time to the glamorous 1950s Hollywood era. Explore top ideas to bring the iconic style and elegance of this golden age into your modern life.
This clear and uninterrupted view of the Hollywood sign was taken at (what is now designated as) 3307 Deronda Drive way up in the Hollywoodland hills. The year was 1950, which means had the photo been taken a year before, the sign would have still read Hollywoodland. Well, sort of. The sign had fallen into such disrepair that the “H” had fallen over. In 1949 the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce removed the last four letters and restored the rest, which is what we’re seeing in this photo.
