    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: In 1926 he was employed on the Princess Marguerite. Kenneth McAllister was a commercial and portrait photographer who worked in Victoria from 1933 to 1955. From 1933 to 1934 he worked for E.J. Savannah's photographic studio. He then worked in partnership with Davis M. Carey from 1935 as Carey and McAllister until 1939 when McAllister opened up his own studio on Fort Street. He later relocated his studio to Vancouver.
