    My name is Martin Klabbers and I have been living in Barwon Heads since 1972. I first started collecting images after buying my first colour scanner in 1993. After scanning a number of early photographs of Barwon Heads and towns along the Great Ocean Road owned by a family friend. This gave me the idea that there may be more photos lying in bottom drawers and cardboard boxes around town. Of these first photos some were already showing signs of aging and at risk of being lost forever.

Slowly as time allows I have approached local residents and asked for a loan of their family photos to include in a developing pictorial history of Barwon Heads. A copy of every image can be seen at Barwon Estuary Heritage Centre. As at January 2004 there are approximately 2500 images in the collection.

Since starting this I have learnt a lot about the local history and it has become a minor obsession looking for more photo's.
