The argument has raged over whether or not the Carnegie Hall ever existed outside of New York. And whether or not Barry Humphries (alias Dame Edna Everage and others) ever played there. This blog can now answer this question for all time. Pictured is a record (vinyl-type) cover depicting Barry Humphries (weighing considerably less than he does now, and considerably younger to boot) standing in front of - CARNEGIE ... HALL (probably Memorial was in the middle part but it is hidden by Barry's head). Although no historians or long time residents this blogger has spoken to ever remember such a hall, I believe it existed - unless of course, it was a carboard replica - and with Barry Humphries involved, that could well be the case.
