Louis L. McAllister Photographs

Born in the heartland city of Omaha, Nebraska, Louis Lloyd McAllister moved to Burlington, Vermont as a young man. McAllister's father was a native Vermonter, and the pull of New England proved too much to resist. After settling down, McAllister put his panorama camera to good use and he began taking large photographs of buildings in Burlington, along with shots of construction projects, businesses, events, sewer construction, and group portraits of clubs and schools. By the time McAllister passed away in 1963, he had amassed a collection of over 1300 photographs. Recently, the Center for Digital Initiatives at the University of Vermont Libraries created this delightful digital collection of his work. Visitors can browse through the collection by subjects (from aircraft accidents to wreckers) or they can also perform keyword searches across the complete collection. For those looking into a glimpse of small town New England life, this site is truly the bee's knees.
