    1. The Hollywood district of Los Angeles was never KNOWN as “Hollywoodland”, it’s always only been Hollywood. A real estate developer named an up and coming neighborhood Hollywoodland (after the district it was in) and built the sign to advertise it. They didn’t intend for the sign to become a landmark and it was only supposed to be temporary. It got rundown after a few decades and because of it’s popularity, the city opted to clean it up but decided to scrap the “LAND” part, so that it reflected the entire Hollywood district and not just the one neighborhood.
