Optical imaging observations for 50 radio galaxies are presented. For each object isophotal contours, photometric profiles, structural parameters (position angle, ellipticity, Fourier coefficients), and total magnitudes are given. These observations, obtained in the Cousins Rband, complement the data presented in a previous paper and are part of a larger project aimed at studying the optical properties of low redshift ( $z\leq 0.12$) radio galaxies (Govoni et al. 1999). Comments for each individual source are reported.

Key words: galaxies: active -- galaxies: fundamental parameters -- galaxies: photometry
