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.

      This view shows the Asphalt Plant with the additional wings erected for the purpose of manufacturing the reinforced concrete sewer pipe for the North End Sewer. The long wing at the right has a platform through the center from which the concrete is poured from two wheeled buggies into the steel form placed on both sides. The wing at the left is the curing room where the tile were stored for a period of forty-eight hours before being taken onto the job. Both buildings were equipped with steam heat.
