"Leslie Jones worked for the Boston Herald-Traveler newspaper between the years 1917 and 1956. He was educated at the Farm and Trade School on Thompson Island. Jones first worked as a pattern-makerbut had long held an interest in photography. While working in a Boston factory, he continued developing himself as a freelance photographer. It was not until Jones, unfortunately, lost two of his fingers to the factory machinery, however, which led him to convert this avocation into his profession. He joined the Boston Herald-Traveler staff in 1917."
