LAist Featured Photos contributer Jonathan Alcorn talks about this photo he took in September. "The Venice sign has returned to Windward Avenue after being taken down in the 1940's. It is a copy of the historical Venice sign that hung across Windward Avenue, a block from the entrance to Venice Beach. The effort to bring back the sign was secured by a beautification grant from the City of Los Angeles for the project in 2004 and began the Venice Sign Restoration Project."
