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.

                                                  August 15, 1939. Intersection of Howard Street, South Winooski Avenue and St. Paul Street (five point intersection). This view shows the wearing surface being constructed on South Winooski Avenue before the leveling course had been constructed by the Burlington Street Dept. on the intersection. Note also new integral curb and gutter radius at the right. A sign in the street slight right of center of the photo indicates that this is a P.W.A. (Pubic Works Administration) project.
