Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT MONTGOMERY, ORANGE CO., N. Y. I I IHE CUT on the opposite page does not give a fair idea of the bridge at Montgomery, N. Y., as it was necessary to take the wl© photograph at some distance from the bridge in order to show the approach and the attending surroundings. The bridge is situated at Montgomery, Orange county, N. Y., and consists of two spans, 115 feet each, with a roadway 20 feet wide in the clear, and one sidewalk, six feet wide in the clear. We furnished the whole bridge, including the foundation, consisting of one pier and two abutments, together with the superstructure. The bridge gives the best of satisfaction, and is pronounced by all who have seen it a masterpiece of work. We wish to call especial attention to the two kinds of railing shown. The outside truss has a lattice railing the same size and construction as the sidewalk railing, but the truss next to the walk has simply two lines of gas pipe. The lattice railing adds very much to the beauty of the bridge, but of course is much more expensive than the pipe railing, but where a bridge is crossed by children, and the travel is heavy and frequent with a walk on one side only, it is generally advisable to use a lattice railing of this kind notwithstanding the extra expense. On country bridges, where the travel is not so frequent, two lines of gas pipe answer every purpose, but we should advise towns under no circumstances to build a bridge without at least two lines of gas pipe, as one line is not sufficient.
