Jones kept every negative of every photo he ever took. One of his final wishes was to have the photos available for all to see, so his family donated truckloads of negatives to the BPL. It took nearly two years to digitize the famous snapshots, but all will be on the site in due time.
New photos will be published each week until the entire collection is up for viewing.
