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.

    Title:   Burlington Streets: Pine St.

    Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

    Date:  1942; 09-18

    September 18, 1942. Pine Street sewer project between Morse Place and Home Ave. This view shows the sewer trench with 10 inch tile installed from Morse Place to a point about mid-way of the block. The excavation the foreground is for the construction of the manhole at station 250 from the intersection of Home Ave. Note that sand filling is used for a cushion under the tile and for backfilling around the tile and for a depth of approximately one foot over the tile. This project is being done under our regular sewer appropriation. A trench hoe was used for digging the trench which was in clay and very tough hard-pan with numerous large boulders which had to be drilled and blasted. No solid rock was encountered.
