The Hollywoodsign that was originally created in 1923 as
an advertisement for a new housing estate, only intended
to last 18 months. It was originally illuminated by
4,000 light bulbs and was maintained for years by a caretaker
named Albert Kothe, who lived in a cabin behind the first 'L'.
Now the sign is worldfamous.
Maybe one day the H from Heeswijk-Dinther will be famous too.
The letter is 22,5 feet tall and is illuminated by 200 light bulbs.
At the backside of the H a litlle house has been built.
