Inside an African-American Community:
Lincolnville in the 1920’s
Richard Aloysius Twine was St. Augustine’s first known African-American photographer. He captured the essence of Lincolnville, an African-American community in St. Augustine, through his photographs. As artistic as they are documentary, Twine’s images tell of events, happy and sad, ceremonial and personal, in lives otherwise often unrecorded. In 1988, glass plate negatives of 103 of Twine’s photographs were found in the attic of his house on Kings Ferry Way and salvaged.
The Richard Twine exhibit is being held at the Tovar House at the Oldest House Museum Complex. Admission is open to those participating in the VIC Journey – Passport Program at no additional cost and is free to members and St. Johns County residents.
The Oldest House Museum Complex hours of operations are 10 am – 5 pm daily.
