Produced by graduate students in the University of Vermont Historic Preservation Program in December 2006, this is the seventh in a series of annual research projects examining the evolution of the historic environment of Burlington, Vermont. The main archival source for this project is the Louis L. McAllister collection of photographs at the UVM Library's Special Collections. Originally taken for the Burlington Street Department to document various public works projects, these historic images date from the 1920s through the 1940s. Included are views of locations south of Pearl Street and Colchester Avenue. The previous year's project, Depression Era Streetscapes: Old North End, includes images north of this area. For each of the original photographs, the students identified the locations and re-photographed the views. Their narrative captions trace the history of the buildings and landscape features seen in the photographs.
