Description:
Look for advertising columns, columns fixed to the earth and used for temporary and varied advertisements.
Expanded Description:
Advertising columns or Morris columns (French: colonne Morris, German: Litfaßsäule) are cylindrical outdoor sidewalk structures with a characteristic style that are used for advertising. They are common in the city of Berlin, Germany, where the first 100 columns were installed in 1855. Advertising columns were invented by the German printer Ernst Litfaß in 1854. Therefore, they are known as Litfaßsäulen (Litfaß columns).

In France, the columns are named Morris after Gabriel Morris, a printer, who held the concession for advertising in 1868. They were originally built by La Société Fermière des Colonnes Morris. Today, they are mostly built and maintained by the JCDecaux company, which purchased the original company in 1986.
Advertising columns are most typically used to display advertisements in the form of posters; many such advertisements have traditionally concerned theater, cinema, nightclub, and concert announcements. Some are motorised and rotate very slowly. A few Advertising columns house Sanisettes/toilets or telephone booths.

These advertising columns are one of the oldest form of advertising in the world and some of the oldest ones are heritage listed.

Most famous advertising columns played a role in movies such as:

  • The Third Man, Harry Lime (played by Orson Welles) uses one of these columns as an escape route to the sewer system under Vienna.
  • In the movie Gremlins 2, Billy Peltzer (played by Zach Galligan) and Daniel Clamp (played by John Glover), use one of these columns as an escape route from the Gremlin infested Clamp Building.
  • In the movie Men in Black II, Agent K (played by Tommy Lee Jones) and Agent J (played by Will Smith), use a column as an escape route from an alien infested MiB Headquarters.

  • If columns are standing close together, only one column can be waymarked.

A newer column, acceptable

This is an enormous Pritt Stick and not a column for changable advertisments therefore unacceptable.
