These signs at the corner of Pico Blvd. and Barrington Ave.are part of melange that includes five full-sized billboards within 100 ft. of that intersection. The Lamar Advertising sign at top is one of many throughout the city advertising a San Fernando Valley strip club. The sign below is put up by a local company called Contest Promotions, which claims that the ads don’t violate the city’s ban on new off-site signs because patrons of the business can enter a drawing to win posters of the ads or other unspecified prizes.Dennis Hathaway
