This album contains 35 black-and-white photographs of the campus of the Theosophical community Lomaland, which served as the international headquarters of the Theosophical Society, in Point Loma, San Diego. The photographs are primarily views of the grounds and exteriors of Lomaland including Raja-Yoga buildings, Katherine Tingley's residence, the Temple of Peace, and the open-air Greek theater, as well as 18 photographs depicting actors outdoors performing scenes from the Shakespeare plays "As You Like It" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream." There are also two images of musical groups identified as the "Raja-Yoga Symphony Orchestra" and the "Raja-Yoga College Band," and three photographs of a group of small children in white outfits identified as "The Little Philosophers" and the "Raja-Yoga Tots." The images are mounted on stock paper with decorative manuscript captions; the photographer is unidentified. The album was presented by Tingley to Albert I. Mather and his wife Katherine Mather of Rockland, Maine, during a visit by Tingley in 1921. The flyleaf has handwritten inscription: "To Host & Hostess. A. I. Mathers & Katherine Mathers. A souvenir of many happy days spent in your company at the Mather Home. Katherine Tingley. Rockland, July 28, 1921." Title transcribed from cover date; date based on inscription date.
