The Chris Algar Archive

Chris Algar, of Tunstall, Stoke on Trent, has been associated with Concertinas for a long time, both as a supporter of the instrument and also trading as “Barleycorn Concertinas”.

In July 2002, he made his collection of Concertina related documents available for scanning onto computer. The scans were made by ICA member Robert Gaskins. Through the kindness of Messrs. Algar and Gaskins, copies of the scans were donated to the ICA in July 2002.

Some of the items listed here may be found at the Concertina Library web site (formerly the Maccann Duet web site).
