He has been called the greatest self-promoter in the history of Seattle. And now, more than 24 years after he died at age 79, Ivar Haglund apparently has managed one more fantastic stunt.

Underwater billboards that date to around 1954. Anchored to the bottom of Puget Sound with concrete footings. Yes, at the bottom of Puget Sound. At around 55 to 80 feet in depth, depending on the tide, and near the shore.

You know, just in case you were in a personal submarine cruising along Elliott Bay, or Edmonds, or Alki Point.

More via Seattle Times Newspaper.

Three of the stainless steel billboards have been brought up in the last month.
