What was going on in St. Augustine during the twenties, you ask? A whole lot of building! Florida was experiencing an incredible land boom. In St. Augustine, we see the development of Anastasia Island including the construction of Davis Shores, a residential community. It was also during this decade that the Bridge of Lions was built. The bridge was completed in 1927, replacing the wooden, ‘Bridge to Anastasia Island’ or ‘South Beach Railroad Bridge.’ It connected the mainland of downtown St. Augustine to St. Augustine Beach.
Leonard and Ruth were young children during the twenties. The following photos were taken during this period. They show Leonard and Ruth as babies as well as H.M and Mary Tucker, Leonard’s parents, and, Cassie and Gustav Sigwalt, Ruth’s parents.
