Old Photographs of News Photographers in the 1920s

Here's a small collection of old photographs from Boston Public Library on Flickr showing how news photographers in the 1920's look like. All photographs were taken by photographer Leslie Jones (1886-1967), who worked for Boston Herald-Traveler newspaper for 39 years from 1917 to 1956.
