Collection Overview

Louis L. McAllister photographed people and places near Burlington, Vermont for 60 years. He was born in Columbus, Nebraska on October 16, 1876, the son of Julius S. McAllister (born 1841 in Lincoln, VT) and Rosette Gould (born in Vermont in 1851). Julius McAllister worked as a photographer and dentist in Washington D.C., Bristol, Vermont and Columbus, Nebraska. Around 1895, Julius, his third wife Amy, and their children left Nebraska for the Union Soldiers’ Colony in Fitzgerald, Georgia. By 1900, Julius and Amy were divorced, and Amy and her stepson Louis were working as photographers in Thomasville, Georgia.

                              Photograph dated Mar. 8, 1950. Original caption reads: "This view shows the horse-drawn sidewalk snow plow unit which has been used by the Street Department for a great number of years. The familiar scene of the horse-drawn unit with the rope tugs and reins and the bell attached to the hames, with the old wooden "V" shape plow oscillating from one side to the other as it is being pulled along the sidewalk and with the hand brake operated by the driver as it proceeds down the hill streets to prevent the plow from going faster than the horse, is fast being displaced by more modern and efficient equipment and will soon be only a remembrance. This unit has served its usefulness and has served well during the days of the "Horse and Buggy" but like many other pieces of equipment it must give way to the demand for more efficient service. "Danny" Bombard, the driver in this picture, has given faithful service to the Street Department for nearly a quarter of a century and has traveled a great many hundreds of miles behind old "Mike" and the wooden plow or a similar unit during many years of service.
