Biographical history

Leslie Frederick Sheraton (Nov. 16, 1906 - July 6,1978) was a Vancouver photographer. He was born in Hull, England and immigrated to Canada in 1910.
After arriving in Canada the Sheraton family settled near Calgary, Alberta. Sheraton served with the Royal Canadian Navy from July 1942 to November 1945. He married Eileen Margaret Wood of Edmonton, Alberta, on April 15, 1944 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The young couple moved to Vancouver shortly after and had one son, Donald Frederick Sheraton on August 29, 1946.

Leslie's professional life was in sales and he was co-owner of a photographic supply shop in Vancouver. He was an avid and accomplished photographer and photographed sites in British Columbia, Alberta, California, Nevada, and Hawaii on regular travels with his family. Sheraton was also an experienced carpenter and boating enthusiast.
