The file consists of a variety of photographic material that was likely used in the preparation of a publication, though the specific publication is unknown.

Predominantly, the negatives depict houses in the Coquitlam area, but there are also some negatives and prints of historical photographs of early Coquitlam.
The file consists of two photographs including a photograph of a school in Coquitlam taken in 1964 and a photograph of the centennial totem pole as it was being painted and prepared for installation as part of the 1967 Canadian centennial celebrations.
