Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT KENNEDY, CHAUTAUQUA CO., N. Y. 1T™7HIS BRIDGE represents in a general way a large type of ordinary iron highway bridges in use throughout the State of New ®J^© York. The bridge has a span of 115 feet, with a roadway 16 feet wide in the clear, and is built to accommodate ordinary country traffic—distinct from heavy city traffic, such as described in the bridge at Waterbury, on page 11. The railing on this bridge consists of two bars of one inch pipe on each side, securely fastened to the trusses, and forms a very effectual guard against ordinary travel getting off the bridge between the panel points. The picture is taken in such a way as to show the ends of the bridge, which present a very ornamental appearance, the portal being curved to form a pleasing outline, and ornamented with a name plate and cast-iron cresting, which, with the ornamental casting on the end posts, give the bridge a very striking appearance when approached from the ends. Of course this ornamentation and curved portal costs more than to build the bridge perfectly plain, but at the same time it adds so much to the general appearance and general style and make-up of the bridge, that parties after once seeing it always adopt it. It costs but little more to have your iron bridges ornamental and tasteful in design and fitted to the location, than it does to build them perfectly plain. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
