Digital Photograph Collection

Richard Taylor Collection

Richard Taylor, a resident of Lexington County, S.C., was a freelance photographer who took photographs of various people, places and structures of Lexington County. The photographs were taken from approximately 1940 through 1976. Many of the people that were photographed by Taylor are deceased and many of the structures that he took pictures of no longer exist or have been significantly modified. Included in the collection are images of the New Brookland community, the Guignard brickworks while in operation, structures in Red Bank Village, local churches and other historical structures and community events. These images also show the daily life and activities of Lexington County residents during these decades.
