Laurel & Hardy Mural, 1996, Harlem

This mural, one of several tributes around Harlem, was created by Andrew Sabori. It’s located on the side of the Columbia Theatre. Though there is some debate as to whether he was born in Harlem or Covington, Harlem claims Oliver Hardy as its favorite son. He later lived in Milledgeville in Macon, as well. It was in Milledgeville, working as projectionist in a silent movie house, that he set out to become an actor. Hardy was one of the first comedy superstars, as the American half of Laurel and Hardy.
