Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY. BRIDGE BETWEEN THE CITIES OF SACO AND BIDDEFORD, MAINE. THIS BRIDGE consists of six spans, 55 feet each, with a roadway 22 feet wide in the clear, and one sidewalk 8 feet wide in the clear. The bridge connects the cities of Saco and Biddeford, Maine, and is subjected to the heaviest city traffic. This is the second bridge which we have built for these two cities across the same stream, and since this photograph was taken we have built a third one at another point further up the stream. This bridge is built in the midst of a lumber district; in fact, lumber is probably cheaper to-day per thousand in the cities of Saco and Biddeford, Maine, than in any other place in the United States, and yet these cities find it more economical to build iron bridges than they do to build wooden bridges. We also wish to call especial attention to the railing on the outside truss, which consists of two pieces of 6 in. x 1% in. white pine plained and thoroughly bolted to the truss. This railing gives a good protection on short, low truss bridges ; in fact, it has the appearance of closing up the open web work to better advantage than two lines of round iron or pipe, but, of course, is not as lasting, as wood will decay, and has to be replaced in time.
