Snapshot of Lytton Strachey reclining on the stones of a beach with a grassy cliff behind him. He wears a hat and looks to the right. Next to him reclines Saxon Sydney-Turner, with his right hand raised behind his head and his left hand raised to his shoulder. He is looking towards the camera.
This is part of a series of two albums, but the other was used by Frances Partridge for her own photographs and has been catalogued with them (FCP/7/2/10).
Professional head and shoulders portrait of Lytton Strachey, wearing a dark woollen overcoat and tie.
Snapshot of Ralph Partridge sitting in the foreground, on the verandah of Ham Spray House. He looks down at his right hand. Lytton Strachey is not clearly visible: he sits in the background with his legs crossed, wearing a hat. His face is hidden by his own knee and Ralph Partridge's knee.

Rosamond Lehmann sitting with Frances Partridge, Lytton Strachey, Vivien John and Wogan Philipps, 1930-07
Snapshot of Rosamond Lehmann sitting to the left closest to the camera on the lawn of Ham Spray House. She sits on a rug or coat on the grass, with her arms crossed on her lap and her head turned away from the camera. According to a note in the album, Frances Partridge might be sitting on the grass with her head turned away from the camera. Vivien John's head is visible over the knee of a man reclining on the grass. In the distance, Lytton Strachey stands next to Wogan Philipps.

Faded snapshot of a woman and two men sitting on rocks in the open air. One man might be Lytton Strachey, the woman might be Virginia Woolf (according to Frances Partridge's index both appear in photographs on page 5 of this album).
In her index, Frances Partridge identifies one of these men as Lytton Strachey.
Shapshot of distant figures sitting in deckchairs or on the grass in front of a lattice fence with cottages behind. This might be the same badminton game as, for example, FCP/7/4/2/125. If so, the figures might be Frances Partridge, Reine Pitman, Stephen Tomlin and Lytton Strachey.
Snapshot of a man sitting on a river bank, with water in the foreground and trees in the background. His head is partially cut off from the photograph, but judging by the clothes and beard, it might be Lytton Strachey.
