Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT BINGHAMTON, N. Y. TT7HE CUT on the opposite page represents a bridge built by us in 1887, at Binghamton, N. Y. The bridge consists of three 0^© spans of 165 feet each, with a roadway 24 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each six feet wide. The bridge is across the Susquehanna River, at the foot of Washington street, and takes the place of what has been known for a great many years past as " the old covered bridge." The bridge is located on the site of the original settlement of the city of Binghamton, which in olden times was known as " Chenang Pint." The Washington street electric street railroad cars cross the bridge. These cars are run by electricity—the motor being placed in the car—and therefore when loaded with a crowd of people are much heavier than the ordinary street car. The bridge is on the direct route to Ross Park, and is crossed by many thousands of people every day, and by these street cars heavily loaded with picnic and excursion parties. Ross Park is the only park in the city, and was presented to the city some years- ago, through the munificence of Erastus Ross, Esq., and is a popular resort for church picnics and excursions. Owing to the beautiful design of this bridge it has largely increased the value of property in the immediate vicinity. We furnished the whole bridge complete, from the foundation to the finish, doing all. the work ourselves with our own men and with our own tools. The roadway is paved with asphalt pavement and has iron joists. Without a doubt it is the finest iron highway bridge in New York State, and second to no iron highway bridge in this country.
