Photographer Gary Leonard has what looks to be a very cool exhibit up in his Broadway gallery: prints made from Kodachrome slides he saved from the trash showing Pacific Outdoor billboards all over Los Angeles. The period graphics themselves are fun enough, but you can often glimpse old streets and pieces of Los Angeles in the background. And the classic cars — next downtown Art Walk I'm there. Check out his online slide show.
His own billboard: CBS Outdoor gave Leonard and the show a board beside I-5.
