Workers strip down the 50-foot-tall letters of the Hollywood sign last week, power washing the corrugated iron and applying nearly 400 gallons of fresh paint. The iconic sign is getting its biggest renovation in 35 years to prepare it for its 90th birthday next year. The restoration, which started earlier this month, will take eight to 10 weeks.
