London Friday Photo

Methodist Central Hall, Westminster
London, May 2014

While its exterior dome might not look familiar, even though it's catty-corner to Westminster Abbey, Methodist Central Hall's spectacular Great Hall made an appearance in the popular film Calendar Girls (Mirren, Wilton, Walters, Hinds, etc.) in 2003. And back in the 1920s, it was used on occasion to make recordings; it's where Eva Turner's first London records were recorded in 1928, including her famous recording of the Turandot aria.
