Photographs, 1913 - 2004

 Series
Reference Code: GBR/0272/FCP/7

Scope and Contents

This series contains Frances Partridge's photograph albums as well as those bequeathed to her by Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington.
The photographs range in size from 3cm x 3.5cm to 21cm x 29cm. However, most are approximately 8cm x 10cm.
Lytton Strachey's photograph albums, Dora Carrington's albums, and the first volume in the series of Frances Partridge's albums have been indexed. Unfortunately, the remainder (FCP/7/2/2-26 and FCP/7/5) await a future grant to be indexed.
Until all albums are indexed, it will be necessary to use Frances Partridge's indexes (FCP/7/1/1-2) to locate the photographs of named individuals. Her reference numbers equate to this catalogue as follows:
LS 1 = FCP/7/3/1
LS 2 = FCP/7/2/10
DC 1 = FCP/7/4/1
DC 2 = FCP/7/4/2
FP 1 = FCP/7/2/1.
Frances Partridge's numbering of her albums is followed as the sub-number of FCP/7/2.
Some images in FCP/7/2-4 have reproductions or enlargements in FCP/7/5.
