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.

              Title:   Stores - Abernethy's (Burlington, VT)

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

              Date:  1945-1946; 1945-1946

              Resource type:   photographs

              Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

              Built on the site where George Perkins Marsh once lived, what would later be known simply as "Abernethy's" was first called "The Richardson" (built 1894), named after the pharmaceutical businessman Albert E. Richardson. It stands on the southeast corner of Pearl and Church Streets. After Abernethy's, the department store, closed in 1983, the building was renovated and renamed "Richardson Place." The architectural style is known as "Scoto-French," apparently because of its blend of French chateau and Scottish castle features.

                      Church Street (37-39). Well-stocked window displays invite shoppers to this three-story F.W. Woolworth on the corner of Church and Cherry St., which would eventually become the largest Woolworth in New England. Looking somewhat like the woolen mills in Winooski, this older structure was replaced by a modern one in 1964. Woolworth started closing its Vt. stores in the 1990s, the Church St. store closing in March, 1998.
