Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT DANIELSONVILLE, CONN. BRIDGE SHOWN on opposite page is located at Danielsonville, Conn., on the N. Y. & N. E. R. R., and consists of one span of 140 feet, with a roadway 20 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each five feet wide. The bridge has iron joist and heavy capacity, as it is situated in the midst of a large manufacturing community and is subjected to the heaviest traffic. The bridge, with its surroundings, presents a very handsome appearance, and has added very much to the beauty of that part of the town in which it is situated. Note also that in this bridge the trusses have a lattice railing to protect the foot passengers on the sidewalk. This is not an absolute necessity but is preferred by a great many towns, especially where the travel is heavy and frequent both on the roadway and sidewalks. It acts equally as well to prevent children from getting on the roadway and thus be in danger of being injured, as well as to keep teams and cattle from the sidewalks. Two or three bars of iron pipe are equally as effective in preventing the roadway travel from getting on to the sidewalk as is a lattice railing, but a lattice railing is much more sightly and adds greatly to the appearance of any bridge.
