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.

      March 28, 1941. College Street Sewer: This view shows the sewer construction on upper College Street between Williams Street and So. Prospect Street. This sewer was reconstructed because of the condition of the old sewer which was the oldest sewer constructed in the City of Burlington, in 1872. This construction was made necessary because of the construction of the University of Vermont Waterman Memorial Building shown at the left of the picture. The sewer had to be constructed at a depth of 14 1/2 feet below the surface where the manhole was installed leading from the new building. Many boulders were encumbered which had to be blasted, some of which can be seen at the right of the picture. Crane with bucket seen center. Behind it in center distance is the peak of University of Vermont's Old Mill. Other campus buildings (on left) are the Bishop's house, Waterman and on the right a fraternity.

                            January 20, 1944. NORTH BEND STREET SEWER CONSTRUCTION PROJECT. This view shows the intersection of North Bend Street in front of the Pomeroy "Stone" Cottage. This project extends from the intersection of Oak Street and North Bend northerly a distance of 110 feet to the intersection shown in the foreground, thence easterly a distance of 167 feet to the dead-end manhole. A new manhole and two catch basins and one manhole are to be constructed at this intersection. 15 inch clay sewer tile is being used in the first section and 10 inch clay sewer tile is being used in the second section. This installation will take care of the surface drainage which here-to-fore has overflowed down over the bank to the left, into the Intervale, but because of the new road now leading to the Refuse Disposal Grounds, this surface water would create severe damage to the road and adjoining banks. Note also the catch basin being constructed at the intersection of North Bend Street and Walnut Street shown in the background. The frost on this date was approximately 4 feet in depth.
