Sold by Walter Barber & Co , of 115, Uxbridge Road, Shepherd's Bush, London, there were two types of Barberphone record, both dating from pre-1920. The first used J. Blum & Co's matrices and the catalogue was in a 1000 and 2000 series. The other Barberphone records are paste-over labels on Grammavox and Popular records.

Despite the information above, the few items I am listing below seem to be from various series!

 

This is a first attempt at a listing with information from the late Arthur Badrock.
Please
e-mail
me if you can help me fill in the gaps in any of these series.

Thanks to the following people who hve sent more information: Bill Dean-Myatt, Norman Field
