Produced in December 2005, this project is the sixth in a series of annual research endeavors conducted by graduate students in the University of Vermont Historic Preservation Program. In previous years the research used historic maps as the main archival sources for analyzing how places have changed. This time the work is based primarily on an extensive collection of high quality photographs dating from the 1920s through the 1940s taken by Louis L. McAllister for the Burlington Street Department. Although the original purpose for the McAllister photographs was to document the city's street construction and repair projects, they now provide an outstanding resource for studying the history of a community, as well as insights into daily life before and during the Depression years. This study includes then-and-now pairs of photographs taken between Pearl Street and the Intervale, from North Avenue through the Old North End neighborhood to Colchester Avenue and Winooski Falls.
