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.

Resource type:   photographs

Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

WPA (Work Projects Administration) Project No. 65-1-12-43 In this Nov. 27, 1939 dated photo, the view shows the completed runway extension of 1,250 lineal feet, 100 feet in width, with the 100 foot radius turning area at the left. The light area in the foreground between the boundary light and the north end of the hard surface, which is approximately 170 feet in length and 100 feet in width, is a light layer of peastone, chips, and stone dust placed to grade and rolled but without any asphalt emulsion treatment either in the base or top. This area is for the purpose of helping the pilots to locate the end of the runway. A similar area, 35 feet long and the full width of the runway was constructed on the southerly end of the north-south runway.

      November 14, 1939. WPA (Work Projects Administration) Project No. 65-1-12-43. View of extension of north-south runway looking northerly from the north end of the old hard surface section. The crushed stone armor coat in the foreground is nearly ready for the first application of Bitumuls HX quick break emulsion. Work is being carried on preparing the turning area at the extreme north end. This extension is 1,250 feet in length and 100 feet in width. The stone in the foreground has been placed for approximately 650 lineal feet. Hand "spotting" is being done on small areas to insure as near a perfect grade as possible using the stock pile shown at the right in the picture, with rubber tired wheelbarrows for transporting the stone over the surface.

                                                This view shows the new Hangar as it appeared on August 10, 1937. All trusses had been completed at this time and the roof plank had been put in place as well as a good share of the sheeting. The door wells had also been started at this time. All glazing had been completed in the lean-to. NOTE: The progress made in constructing this Hangar is shown by the several pictures.
