The fonds consists of Anton Money's report of the 1943 Canol Pipeline survey trip, with accompanying photographs, as well as a variety of other photographs taken by Money of the north. The report was compiled from Money's diary for J. Gordon Turnbull and Sverdrup and Parcel, Architect Engineer, Canol Project. Fifty-two photographs accompany the report, while another 38 photographs are separate from the report but illustrate the survey project (84/76).

Fourteen photographs, 1925-1942, depict White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad snow plow cuts and train trestles, hydraulic mining operations at the mouth of Dominion Creek, Klondike Airways cat train in Whitehorse, Taylor, Drury & Pedlar General Store in Carmacks, Tahltan men poling boat-loads of furs on the Dease River, and a native beaver camp (80/46).

In the last accession there are three views of a hydraulic mine operating on Dominion Creek in 1929, and one view of four sternwheelers in dry dock in Whitehorse for the winter, 1943 (87/52).

The fonds also contains a film taken by Money of trips he took in 1931, from Skagway to Whitehorse, then by dog sled to Frances Lake (84/83).
