The fonds consists of a photograph of William Henry Northup and Marvin Ransen, likely taken around the time that Northup and Ransen first took homesteads. There is also a biography of William Henry Northup written by his son Clarence.
The fonds consists of textual records and photographs created or collected by Hubert A. Hollingworth. The textual records reflect Hollingworth’s business and photography work, as well as his family and household life. There are also records where it is not known how they are specifically related to Hollingworth, so it has been assumed he collected the pieces. These records, as well as the books and maps, reflect Hollingworth's variety of interests.
The photographs cover a wide array of Edmonton including buildings and street scenes, activities and events, as well as people and businesses.
The photograph records are divided into two series: Series 1 – Hollingworth Photographs. Series 2 – Glass Slide Photographs.
This fonds consists of material related to land titles and related correspondence in the parts of Sturgeon County that were eventually annexed by the City of Edmonton. The records detail changes pertaining to the land such as the sales, recovery of taxes, building permits, and changes of ownership.
