Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT STAMFORD, CONN. \ I /HE CUT on the opposite page is taken from a photograph of a bridge built by us in 1887, at Stamford, Conn., and consists of one ®^© span of 150 feet, with a roadway 20 feet wide, and two walks, each five feet wide. Stamford is on the line of the N. Y., N. H. & H. R. R., and the bridge can be clearly seen from the cars on the south side of the track. At the time this bridge was built there was a great strife as to which was the better, an iron or a stone arch bridge, but, owing to the extreme cost of a stone bridge, an iron bridge with iron joist and asphalt pavement was adopted at a cost of less than one-fourth of a stone arch. The bridge is on a grade of about three feet in its length, which is hardly noticeable at a distance, but it shows the great adaptability of the Parabolic truss to bridges of this class—bridges on a grade. The truss is placed horizontally, perfectly level and the floor is made tangent to the truss at the center ; one end post is lengthened while the other end post is shortened an equal amount, so that the bridge is not distorted in any way, nor is there any ambiguity in the amount or character of the strain, owing to the bridge being on a grade. This is the only form of truss made in which this condition prevails. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
