The fonds consists of several series of documents kept primarily in the order in which they were received. These include working files and specifications, rolled plans, inspections, and a few survey plans of Charlottetown. Some of the plans are the work of E. S. Blanchard and a few are those of the firm of Harris and Horton including some preliminary structural drawings for churches designed by W .C. Harris.
The format of the first two series requires that they be housed separately until they can be flattened but the file listing incorporates the two series in order to present a more representative picture of each project. It is anticipated that eventually the folded plans (now housed in the working files) will form one series with the rolled plans and what remains in the working files will form the second series.
As well, the fonds contains six bound volumes of the Daily Examiner newspaper, 1885-1899, a volume of Goad Insurance Plans for Prince Edward Island, 1881 updated to 1910, and a collection of miscellaneous documents, photographs, and watercolours which belonged to E. S. Blanchard, including a cased daguerrotype of an Island military group, ca. 1855 and a family photograph of the Toombs family.
