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.

The Street Department erected this building with its own employees and with material salvaged from various and sundry jobs. The Street Department purchased this baler and scales for the baling and weighing of salvage materials. The bale of pasteboard and cartons shown on the scales weight approximately 100 lbs. The salvage process will continue at this plant as a regular function of the operation of the Municipal Refuse Disposal Grounds of the Street Department after the War is over and for helping to pay the operating costs of the grounds.
