String-tied alligator skin-patterned paper over card covers with "Photographs" stamped in white on front cover. 39 black and white, or sepia-toned gelatin silver images.

An album of the Girl Guides at various "District Camps" at Whippingham, Isle of Wight and at Bournemouth and other locations in Western England.

The Guides are shown playing games, in tents, at the beach, at meal time, and in makeshift camp kitchens. An interesting pair labeled "cookies" depicts girls preparing baked goods; a series of six other depicts a "colour party" rally that includes a "knot relay race"; and a high jump event.
