Do you have photos and/ or videos of barbershop in Australia from across the years?

I have begun teaching a class at Harmony Academy each year on the history of BHA. I already have a bunch of material such as all scores, some historic photos and videos, etc, but I want much more to be able to include in my class and hopefully a stand-alone video on the history of BHA that I will put together. Specifically what I’m looking for are photos and videos of

  • Convention – especially early years– groups photos of the welcome dinner, mass sing, full audience during competition, any group photos that were taken, such as a Harmony College

  • Medallist quartets and choruses

  • Launching of clubs/ inaugural events (like first rehearsal)

  • Trips/ concerts/ coaching visits etc – things that show a specific event in the history of your club, and therefore BHA

If you have any of these, please contact me at or 0411 519 851

Also, if you can digitise videos, please get in touch. We have a large number of videos (at least hundreds of hours) that are going to be lost forever when the physical videos deteriorate.

I look forward to hearing from you.
