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.

                                                  1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. This could have occurred on July 4th or perhaps on Labor Day, when the mill sponsored a "Field Day" for mill workers and their families. The street seen here is very likely Follett St., with the Congregational Church at the top of the hill (upper left). (Photo 1 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.)
