The fonds consists of black and white photographs, some of which were processed on card-stock paper or postcard. The photographs depict construction projects, settlement communities, rail roads, indigenous peoples, Charles and Anne Lindbergh, and images of northern landscapes. They document the process of mechanization and frontier expansion. In addition to the photographs is one newspaper clipping with a picture of the "Lindbergh Baby", relating to his kidnapping on March 1st, 1932. The photographs and postcards are stored in two leather bound photo albums with black-paper pages. Painted on the leather covers are an Indigenous chief, a teepee near pine trees, and the words "Photograph Album" and "Churchill".
The fonds consists of six films. The first film, labeled "Jack Frost", shows the Santa Claus Parade in what is believed to be Toronto during the 1950s (6:15). The second film depicts the Santa Claus Parade in Winnipeg in 1948 (5:45). The third film is of a young Indian girl performing a traditional dance routine during the 1960s (4:45). The fourth film shows a veterans parade in Winnipeg during the 1960s and the laying of wreaths (2:45). The fifth and sixth films are commercially produced films featuring clips of silent movie stars Harold Lloyd, "Fatty" Arbuckle and Charlie Chaplin (7:00), as well as musical performances by the Eton Boys titled "I Want a Girl," "Bicycle Built for Two," and "My Gal Sal" (7:50).
The fonds contains 38 glass plate negatives of scientists' portraits, which Professor Anderson used in his classes. They include Archimedes, Galileo, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein. The fonds also contains Anderson's obituary.
Two of the films (one black & white, one colour) feature the visit of King George VI of England and Queen Elizabeth to Winnipeg during their Royal Tour of Canada in May 1939, mainly showing people preparing for the Queen and King to drive by in their car and the related festivities. School groups of children are shown, including some from what appear to be Somerset School and Cecil Rhodes School. There is a duplicate of the colour film. The other three films (two black & white, one colour) mainly feature student track and field competitions. The colour reel includes a ceremony on the steps of Cecil Rhodes School with boys in blue cadet caps, girls singing, and an unidentified military dignitary. The track meets appear to include students from Cecil Rhodes School, Daniel McIntyre School, and likely other schools. Two of the films show the former Osborne street stadium, while the other appears to be at either a school or community sports field. Photographs document water levels of Winnipeg flood from April - May 1950; a small group of unlabelled photos depict a family of three, possibly of Storch, and scenes around a dam (possibly in Pinawa).
The Emil and Lynette Hain fonds consists of textual records, such as letters, handwritten lecture notes, a program advertising the Rev. Riddette’s slide show, and a typewritten communication service in the Native language of the Transvaal region. The fonds also contains negatives, and a collection of glass lantern slides and created by Rev. Thomas Watson which document the missionary work being undertaken in the Transvaal region of South Africa prior to the onset of the Boer War. Rev. Watson created the glass lantern slides from his original negatives and used them as the basis of his lecture tour titled "The Boers: Their Country, their Ways, their Neighbours, and their War." It is likely that Rev. Watson purchased additional glass lantern slides from Rev. J.H. Riddette’s slide show to supplement his own collection. Emil Hain donated two Brooke High School yearbooks from 1953 and 1954 (Rivers, Manitoba). The collection also contains one film reel and a program documenting the 1958 installation banquet for the Zeta Iota chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity at the University of Manitoba, as well as a 1958 copy of the Fraternity magazine (Teke Life) which talks about the fraternity at the University of Manitoba.

The fonds consists of photographs, many of which are framed, relating to Ukrainian settlers in the Elk Island, Alberta region.
Located less than an hour away from Edmonton, Alberta, Elk Island National Park of Canada protects the wilderness of the aspen parkland, one of the most endangered habitats in Canada. This beautiful oasis is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. Also boasting over 250 species of birds, the park is a bird watcher's paradise.
The fonds consists of two 16 mm film reels of a 1935 rally in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan of the Canadian Ukrainian Youth Association (C.Y.M.K.). The films offer individual and group footage of young Ukrainians from the western region as well as scenes of the prairie city in the mid-1930s.
