Series consists of the records of 12 synagogues in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. The records include black and white Polaroid prints and 35 mm colour slides of the exterior and interior of synagogues, including cornerstones and interior furnishings and objects. Series also contains forms filled out for the Canadian Inventory of Historic Buildings. These forms detail the buildings' architectural details such as size, shape, construction, windows, doors, trim, stairs, etc. As well, most files contain an inventory sheet of resources gathered (eg. articles, synagogue booklets), including a listing of photographs taken.
The series is arranged alphabetically by city, then synagogue.
