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.

                                      December 11, 1945. City of Burlington, Vermont, Street Department Lakeside Ave. Pavement Base Construction This view was taken from a point near the intersection of Central Ave. looking easterly toward the underpass. Note that the temporary wearing surface had been constructed for the base after the work of mixing and stabilizing the base had been completed as shown in the picture under date of Dec. 5, 1945. This stage of construction was done to enable the street to be used during the winter and early spring without experiencing the troubles of early spring break-up of the old dirt and cinder street. The pavement will be completed in the summer of 1946. Note the crushed stone base placed in the driveway after regrading to meet new grades. To the left in background is the Blodgett Co.

                                        December 5, 1945. City of Burlington, Vermont, Street Department Lakeside Ave. Pavement Base Construction This view was taken from a point near the intersection of Central Ave. looking easterly toward the underpass. The new factory building just completed for the Blodgett Co. is shown with parking area base recently constructed between the street line and the building. Note the asphalt emulsion stabilized base which was mixed the previous day before taking this picture. Cold weather and frost conditions had frozen the base mixture on the left half of the street but the job was continued on the north half in spite of the low temperatures as the street had to be put in condition to receive traffic for the winter, this street being on a regular bus line. The job was continued by placing a 2 inch layer of crushed stone on this stabilized base and penetrating the same with asphalt emulsion and covering with concrete sand as a "blotter" for the winter and then opened to traffic. This project will be continued to completion in the spring by constructing an integral concrete curb and gutter on the south side of a 2 inch hot plant mix wearing surface over the entire pavement area. Note the asphalt distributor applying emulsion and the tractor and harrow mixing the base.
