(Los Angeles) Mount Lee's sign is about to get a temporary change this week. The letters HOLLYWOOD are going to be turned in "SAVE THE PEAK." Today, the first two letters were erected, and for the time being, Hollywood is now "Sallywood."
My late uncle and aunt Dan and Eleanor O'Halloran use to live in the first house located directly under the would famous "Hollywood" sign. My cousins now live in that wonderful and beautiful casa and the "Hollywood" sign has been a very important part of our family history for generations. I spent most of my summers as a child playing under the shadow of this sign...and along the trails that connect the Hollywood canyon. GREAT TIMES and MEMORIES!
So, anytime the iconic sign is in the news, it always "peaks" my interest.
Here is more about the famous Mount Lee. It is the peak of the Santa Monica Mountains, in Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California, USA. The famous Hollywood Sign is located on its southern slope. The sign is visible north of the Mulholland Highway. A good view of it can be had by driving north up Gower Street from Hollywood Boulevard to see the sign directly ahead, and then north along Beachwood Drive. One can also take Franklin Ave. directly to Beachwood. This is the location of the Hollywoodland suburb for which the sign was created.
