Arguably, billboards started from two otherwise innocuous methods. The first was BurmaShave's use of five small signs along roads giving a poem. The second was the practice of some companies agreeing to pay to paint a farmer's barn in heavily travelled areas in exchange for being allowed to paint their ad on the side of the barn that faced a major highway. Sometimes the farmer got additional payments in addition to the free paint job.

Billboards spread everywhere, epecially along interstate highways, until TheSeventies and the environmental movement came along. Billboards were considered ugly, and many places either banned them or refused to allow further renewals to be issued for billboards on public property. However, billboards still exist.

Billboards spread everywhere, epecially along interstate highways, until TheSeventies and the environmental movement came along. Billboards were considered ugly, and many places either banned them or refused to allow further renewals to be issued for billboards on public property. The final "nail in the coffin" occurred when federal law was changed to prohibit billboards on publicly funded highways, including interstates.

Now, the only source of billboard advertisements are those located on private property, usually in rural areas, at least in the US. In Europe, and particularly the UK, billboards are still big business.
