Boston Herald-Traveler photographer Leslie Jones had an eye for a dramatic scene, including when this seven-tonne dump truck plunged through the Warren Avenue bridge, in BostonAmong the vast collection is this shot of a truck crashing through a garage several stories up in the East Cambridge area of BostonOften the dramatic and tragic scenes that Jones captured involved fatalities and in this shot a policeman tries to rescue a car that has crashed into icy water in the Boston areaThis photo powerfully coveys the danger of driving on roads in the 1930s during winter, the icy roads appear to have been too much for this car to handle and it is literally wrapped around a tree after a crash in the village of Auburndale in MassachusettsA number of the shots in the Jones collection involve cars being hauled out of water and here a car lies completely upright before it is taken out of a canalThis shot captures an accident that took place as a woman was being rushed to hospital, the car taking her to get treatment jumped a curb and careered into the steps of a nearby houseThe 1930s were a decade of advancement in the motor industry with additions like hydraulic breaks coming into use - however, this motorist seems like they may have had their foot on the gas pedal rather than the breakIn this interesting photos members of the fire brigade and police department try to rescue people from a car stuck in Boston's Fort Point ChannelThe mail could have been a little late after this crash and the photo also offers a compelling insight into the design of the early automobiles - which by the looks of the truck - were very limitedAaron Schmidt, from the Boston Public Library, said Leslie Jones had a 'great eye' for a dramatic scene as this great shot shows
