SOME COOL BILLBOARDS FROM THE LATE 1940s

YOUNG PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD STARTED WHEN THEY WERE BORN.

THEY HAVE THIS BELIEF THAT EVERYTHING IS NEW - IT AIN'T TRUE, SONNY!!!

BILLBOARD IMAGES USED TO BE PASTED ON THE BILLBOARD - SMALL SQUARES ONE AT A TIME.

THE WORKER WOULD "WALLPAPER" THE BILLBOARD WITH THE APPROPIATE BILLBOARD SQUARE.

THE END RESULT WAS A PIECE OF ADVERTISING POP CULTURE.

NOWADAYS, THE ENTIRE IMAGE IS PRINTED ON ONE VINYL TARP, AND IT IS TIED TO THE BILLBOARD.

IT ALLOWS THE ADVERTISERS TO CREATE FAR MORE COLORFUL IMAGES, AND IT IS CHEAPER.
