During a long career, Leslie Jones (a self-described "camera-man") took well over 40,000 photographs documenting the city of Boston and environs. Jones was a staff photographer for the Boston Herald-Traveler from 1917 to 1956, and he covered everything from a fox stuck in a tree on the Boston Common to Charles Lindbergh's U.S. tour after his historic crossing of the Atlantic. This remarkable online collection of photos was created by the Boston Public Library from the images generously donated by Jones' family. The photos are divided into over five dozen topical collections, including "Animals: Birds," "Boston: Neighborhoods," "Boston: Waterfront," and "Maritime: USS Constitution." Also of note are several particularly unique groupings dedicated to fires and fire departments around the city and the state of Massachusetts.
