Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

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.

Title:   Burlington Streets: Lakeside Ave 

Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

Date:  1945; 12-05; 1945; 12-05

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.

Feb. 17, 1944 dated photo. Burlington Street Department, Snow Removal Methods and Equipment. This view of Main Street looking westerly from the intersection of South Winooski Ave. showing the effect of the clear Rock Salt applied to the pavement the previous day with the equipment shown in view No. 1. Note the great amount of snow piled along the gutters and the entire absence of snow in the traveled portion of the street, thus eliminating the necessity of applying sand for traction purposes. Although the pavement is wet with the salt brine formed from the melting snow it does not create a slippery condition because the tires seem to grip the pavement as the frost is removed from the surface. On the left is the Court House and the mansard roofed building that once was a place of worship for the First Baptist Church. Businesses and retail stores on the right including offers for personal loans, and the Federal Savings Bank. Cars parked on both sides of the street.
