The album contains b&w photographs that depict life there as well as trips to Wasaga Beach and the Nottawasaga River, Peterborough, Niagara Falls and Port Dalhousie, and Porcupine. The album arrived unbound so the order of the pages may not be correct. Notable photographs include Wahnapitae Camp, the 1912 flood, lakes ships such as the Turret Chief, the City of Midland and Dalhousie City, as well as the Bank of Ottawa in Porcupine. Some of Kennedy’s friends or family are identified in the album : various members of the Beasley family, Leila Ironside, Nettie McLeod, Leon Bosdet, V. Fitzgerald., Grace Stubbs, Miss Whalen, O.W.
