The collection consists of sound and moving image records accumulated by Alan Bulman from 1965 to 1994. The films relate to Ontario locales including North Bay, Fenelon Falls, and Stratford. Other subject matter in the film footage includes: gold production in Ontario; the University of Toronto; Steep Rock Iron Mines Limited; a school bus in Ridgetown, Ontario; aviation in Toronto in the 1920s; a strike at the General Motors of Canada plant in Oshawa, Ontario; the 1930s Hi-Li game craze (a popular game in the 1930s); Red Cross emergency relief work; men from the Eglinton Hunt Club participating in a fox hunt; and the jitterbug dance. Also included is footage of Ontario troops in WWII.

Two audio cassettes contain interviews conducted by Alan Bulman and Greg Hoy with George Patton in February of 1969. George Patton, former Director of the Ontario Motion Picture Bureau (OMPB), discusses his work with the OMPB, Father Joseph Gravelle's purchase of the OMPB's collection of 28 mm films, the OMPB theatre at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), and getting fired from the OMPB in 1934. Patton also discusses his involvement in facilitating the purchase of 28 mm film projectors for every agricultural representative in Ontario, as well as his three month trip to England in 1930, where he made twenty films. In the interview, Bulman also discusses with Patton the content of an OMPB catalogue of films.
