The fonds consists of records both collected and created by the ERRS.
The collected records include ‘cancelled notices’ likely from the office of the Superintendant of the Edmonton Radial Railway. These notices cover a variety of topics and issues, including behavior of drivers, changes to routes and services, driving instructions, repairs to trolley cars and employee events. These records reflect the daily operations of the Edmonton Radial Railway.
The records created by the ERRS include proposals for buildings at Fort Edmonton Park, correspondence, and the group’s newsletter ‘The Trip Sheet’.
The photograph was used for an Edmonton Historical Board award given to the ERRS in 1990.

The textual records reflect Hollingworth’s business and photography work, as well as his family and household life.

These records, as well as the books and maps, reflect Hollingworth's variety of interests.
