Before they invented lane marking. Nice pic Jay. I forgot it was called "Hollywoodland" before it became just "Hollywood".

There is a native shrub which grows all over southern California, Toyon. We have many of them in our yard. It has red berries which ripen in the late fall. It is really not, "Holly" but the popular name is California Holly.

These shrubs are very common around the hills in the Los Angeles area, and in the 1920's a subdivider named his subdivision "Hollywoodland". Over the years the nickname for that part of Los Angeles became "Hollywood". Later the "lands" was removed from the sign. Because of the movie studios the post office in the area is named "Hollywood" but the area is really inside Los Angeles city limits.

I was born in the Hollywood Hospital which is on Western Avenue Near Franklin Ave. Our family lived in Glendale which was about 5 or 6 miles east of Hollywood.

Can you get your TT up to 88 miles per hour? I do have a 120 volt degausser in my workbench drawer that you may use to align your flux capacitor if you have one.

What's the other "H" on the hill.... Just to the left if you would follow the street up the hill?

It's the H put there by Hollywood high school athletes. Most high school students put their Letter on a high place around the town and their letterman's sweaters.
