H. Jorud (September 19, 1899 - August 21, 1977) photographed
in front of his shop at 320 North main in the mid-1940s.
of all kinds, Les Jorud was the go-to man in Helena for decades.
Numerous examples of his work can be seen throughout this
website. His huge lifetime collection of images now belongs
to the Montana Historical Society, and is a priceless record
of life in the Helena area. We, and future generations of
Helenans, owe a great debt to Les.
