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.

                              Customers celebrating the New Year in Sulham's Sweet Shop, 60 Main St., Winooski, Vt. 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.

                                                  1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills (AWM) in Winooski, Vermont, perhaps on the Fourth of July or on Labor Day, when AWM sponsored a Field Day for employees and their families. It appears to be summertime and a large crowd is gathered in Mill Park for the event. A corner of the speakers' stage is seen on the left. The street on the uphill side of the park is very likely West Center St., and Follett St. is off to the right. Photo 4 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.
