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.

                Undated photo but the winter of 1955 when the steamboat Ticonderoga was moved overland from Shelburne Bay to the Shelburne Museum. The ship rests on a cradle to which it is welded and moves along railroad tracks laid on the frozen ground. The move had to be made in winter in order for the ground to support the rails and the huge amount of weight they had to carry. A helicopter flies above the excursion boat.
