Photograph caption dated January 21, 1958 reads "Sometimes even barbershoppers get broken up over sentimental ballads they sing in close harmony. Burt Mustin, 73, of North Hollywood, in foreground, clutches his skimmer and his handkerchief as other members of Pasdu Notes skim musically through an old favorite. They are from left, Jim Laverty, Rang Hansen and Howell Jones."
