Rebuilding the Past We Wanted 
The historic preservation movement in America is mostly concerned with saving relics of the past to show what life and craftsmanship was like in previous times. But what about the times when we created brand new things to show what life was like in the past? Museum villages were massively popular in America in the middle of the 20th century, and St. Augustine was a great example. This is the interesting story of how these reconstructed villages came to occupy an important place in the preservation movement in the US, and how they fell from favor.

The Meyer Family: Photographers of St. Augustine and Tin Can Tourists

 

The Meyer family resided in St. Augustine in the 1870s and 1880s and returned as tin can tourists after 1918. This talk will show their photographs, printed from glass plate negatives, and tell the story of this family. The family were prolific amateur photographers and their images show a side of St. Augustine that is usually not seen. The Richard Aloysius Twine and Meyer family glass plate collection are featured in the current issue of El Escribano, the journal of the St. Augustine Historical Society.
