Richard Aloysius Twine, born in St. Augustine on May 11, 1896, had a brief but notable career as a professional photographer in Lincolnville, Florida. Lincolnville was the center of the black business and residential community in St. Augustine during the first few decades of the 20th century.

These black-and-white images reflect the social and cultural environment of the Lincolnville community in the 1920s, and include photographs of the annual Emancipation Day parade.

The original photographs taken by Richard Aloysius Twine are housed in the Saint Augustine Historical Society in Saint Augustine, Florida.
