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.

                                            Eight men and eight women in an office, which looks fairly typical but certainly not model (note oddly stacked furniture, crowded layout). Very few clues to the type of business other than the conservative dress code.

Harold Sulham is behind the Coke machine; his wife Evelyn is one of the waitresses behind the bar. The smiling lady in front is Charlene Sullivan, and the three boys in the back are (l.-r.) Johnny Provost, Chuck Crowley, and Francis Mongeon (Source: Vincent Feeney's 2002 history of Winooski, p. 147). -- Note the pressed tin ceiling and the display of flags above the bar, very likely those of the Allied Forces in World War II.
