Leslie Creek, Globe, April 26, 1918

Leslie Creek started on the hill north of Blake Street, crossed the track, and ran down west of Leslie Street to cross Jones Avenue where this unfortunate woman’s house was. The creek was slow, muddy and a breeding ground for mosquitos which is why Lesliegrove Park was called “Mosquito Park.”
