Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT OXFORD, N. Y. T^^HE BRIDGE on the opposite page is taken from a photograph of a bridge built by us in 1884, at Oxford, N. Y. The bridge ® J^® consists of one span of 150 feet, with a roadway 20 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each five feet wide. This was one of the first iron highway bridges of any considerable span built by us in New York State. Oxford is a small but very enterprising and flourishing town, and one of its principal industries is the large stone quarry of Clarke & Son. Here is quarried the finest flagging stone to be found anywhere in New York State, if not in the United States. These quarries can furnish flagging stone having a larger surface measure, without crack or blemish, than any quarry in the United States. Frequently these stone weigh from 18 to 25 tons, and in order to get them to the depot, it is necessary to haul them over this bridge. There is probably no bridge in New York State which is subjected to so severe and heavy loads as this bridge, and it shows conclusively the adaptability of the Parabolic Truss to heavy concentrated loads. The masonry on which this bridge stands is a marvel of strength and good workmanship, the stone having been taken from the adjacent quarry of Clarke & Son. The workmanship also is first-class, and the abutments are probably equal to any ever built in New York State. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
