This is new but not new. Virginia Woolf’s Monk’s House photo albums are on the Harvard University Library website.

Word of them showed up in a Feb. 12, 2016, post on the History Buff website, “Peek Inside Virginia Woolf’s Personal Photo Album.”  Duckworth

They’ve been there for some time. When I found them, they were posted as individual volumes. Once you scrolled past the introductory text, you could click on individual images, such as the one at right, a photo of George Duckworth.

You could also find them as Monk’s House Photograph Album.

This link on the Harvard University Library website displays the 144 individual pages of WoolfVirginia Woolf’s Monk’s House photo albums individually in a lefthand sidebar when you choose the “Show Thumbnails” option.

The image of very other page in the sidebar shows no photos attached. However, when you click on the image of a blank page, you will see that those blank pages appear to be the backs of the pages with the photos. Apparently, those pages were intended to be left empty.

You can also view Leslie Stephen’s Photograph Album on the Smith College site.
