What is the oldest standing street-level billboards in the metropolitan area? I'm talking about the type that is so low it would be tough to drive a car under it. Some examples of this height can be found at Chicago/Ashland and Broadway/Ardmore. List the ones you know!

I think there's still one at the corner of Ashland/Armitage, but I don't know how old it is. Do abandoned gas station billboards count?
