CITY BEAUTIFUL (1920's-50's)
Designed in response to early complaints of billboard visual clutter, in the early 1900's at a time when the city beautiful movement was sweeping the nation. This sign was not only the most ornate billboard used, but also the most expensive to build and maintain.

LATTICE (1900's-60's)
Without a doubt the lattice was the most universal billboard style of it's day. This billboard was popular in both rural and urban areas. The lattice served as an effective decorative device and a means to hide all the supports present behind the billboard.

GRILL (1940's-60's)
The grill billboard was an updated version of the more expensive to build and maintain deco style frame. This billboard was more popular in rural areas with a few surviving today on some of our older, less traveled highways.

$9.95 $8.95 BLS-1432
POLE (1950's-Present)
The pole billboard with its simplified structural framework of vertical treated wood poles is one of today's most popular adaptations of the billboard, especially in rural areas. Kit includes vintage horizontal grill (as shown) and modern vertical etched grill.
$9.95 $8.95 BLS-1433
WALL (1930's-Present)
The wall billboard was developed for use in crowded urban areas where space is at a premium and was seen as a much needed improvement over simply pasting an ad on the side of a building. The wall billboard is still common today in urban areas.
