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.

                    August 24, 1945. This view was taken from the Burlington end of the bridge looking northerly. Note the asphalt construction crew placing the 2 inch hot plant mix asphalt wearing surface on the westerly half of the bridge while the other half is being used for two way traffic. This wearing surface was placed 2 inches in thickness and tapered off on to the approaches at each end. The cost of this work was borne by the City of Winooski and City of Burlington sharing in the proportion of the grand list of each City and the State Highway Department. The State Highway Department paid for 4/5 of the total cost while the other fifth was divided between the two cities.

                                                1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills (AWM) in Winooski, Vermont, perhaps on the Fourth of July or on Labor Day, when AWM sponsored a Field Day for employees and their families. It appears to be summertime and a large crowd is gathered in Mill Park for the event. A corner of the speakers' stage is seen on the left. The street on the uphill side of the park is very likely West Center St., and Follett St. is off to the right. Photo 4 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.
