It contains black and white photographs that mostly document flooding in residential areas near the Red River (Fort Rouge, Riverview, North End, Point Douglas, Crescentwood, Armstrong's Point and others). Scrapbook appears to be organized geographically by area and street. In addition to documenting flooding, the photographs provide a detailed record of residential neighbourhoods, houses, streets, and businesses like corner grocery stores and laundries. All photographs were taken by Harold K. White Studio.
