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 Oct. 6, 1944. Original caption reads: "Burlington Street Department - Stanley Leaf Eductor This view shows the Stanley Leaf Eductor as it appeared when first designed and ready for demonstration. Later a few changes were made including substituting a Ford motor for the LeRoi motor (shown in this picture) to generate more suction power. Note the Universal joint in the suction pipe with telescoping section operated by a cantilever handle. The upper section of the body was constructed with strips of sheet metal lined with chicken wire and coarse burlap which would allow the air to escape as the dirt and leaves were blown into the body. The truck used for this Leaf Eductor is the old 1923 Model 5 ton White which was originally purchased with the Elgin Catch Basin Eductor, the body of which minus the baffle plates was used for the lower portion of the new body which holds approximately 12 cubic yards and is dumped by a power lift. The original motor in this truck has been replaced by a rebuilt motor. The blower used as suction power for this equipment was a Concord Blower which has been used for nearly 20 years as a sawdust blower in a sawmill and for another 20 years as a dust collector at our Municipal Asphalt Plant. The ends of the blades of the rotor were cut off and replaced with heavy 8 ply belting material to eliminate breakage. This equipment was used in cleaning the leaves from the gutters until freezing weather prevented work of this nature.
