Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT JAMESTOWN, N. Y. ^TfHIS BRIDGE represents a very large class of iron highway bridges throughout New England, New York, and Pennsylvania. ® I © It consists of one span of 76 feet, with a roadway 16 feet wide in the clear, and is an exact picture of a bridge built by us at Jamestown, N. Y. in 1887. The trusses are 8 feet deep on centers and are pin connected throughout, so that there is no cast iron whatever about the bridge except small washers and the ornamental urns on top of each end post. Jamestown is a very flourishing city, the principal industry being lumber, and yet, notwithstanding the low price of lumber, the authorities find it more economical to build iron bridges than wooden bridges. The bridge has a wooden railing consisting of two pieces of 6 in. x 1^ in. white pine on each side, securely bolted to the trusses, which offers a safe and ample guard on bridges where the traffic is not very severe. A railing of this kind also serves to protect the trusses against careless driving. The top chord is made out of two channels with a cover plate, latticed on the underside, which lattice work is not to be found in ordinary iron highway bridges except those built by us. It adds very materially to the strength of the chord, and should be insisted upon in all cases where the bridge has a span of over 50 feet. Parties in want of iron highway bridges in spans from 60 feet to 80 feet will do well to visit this bridge and examine it as it is one of the best of its kind in New York State.
