Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, This cut represents a bridge built by us for the town of Waterbury, in 1879, on Baldwin street, over Mad river. It consists of one span of 50 feet, with a roadway 24 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each four feet wide in the clear. The bridge is subjected to very heavy travel, and as a large number of school children pass over it daily, it was necessary to put the lattice railing on the trusses as shown—not so much to protect the children on the sidewalk, as to keep jE them from crossing on the roadway. This cut represents a 215- foot span, built by us in Warren County, Ohio, in 1880. The bridge consists of one span, 215 feet long, with roadway 16 feet wide in the clear. The cut shows clearly the floor line chord below the floor, which acts to resist the wind strain—a very important item in bridges of this extreme span and narrow width. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
