Gone But Not Forgotten

trailer without billboard, photo by Rosemary West © 2009Last night someone informed me that the notorious political billboard had been removed. I photographed the trailer this morning.

I don't know who took the sign away, but it seems that it wasn't done in the usual way. Typically, these billboards stay parked in the same place for weeks or months at a time. Sometimes they are moved to a new location, and from time to time the billboards are replaced. I've never seen one of these trailers without a billboard.

I took this picture from my car. Note that if the billboard were still in place, it would be blocking my view of the pedestrian crossing sign. Also note the buildup of debris and trash around the tires.

Will we ever know who really paid for this, or who had it removed? Will there ever come a time when the city of Los Angeles enforces its regulations and takes action against these eyesores?
