Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT SHELDON, VT. l I f HE CUT on the opposite page gives but a poor idea of a suspension bridge built by us during the year 1888 at Sheldon, Vt., con- ®J^fe sisting of one span of 250 feet center to center of towers, with a roadway 16 feet wide in the clear. The photograph from which this cut was made was taken when the snow was on the ground, and therefore does not show the construction as clearly and as forcibly as it should. The bridge is located in a farming region over a terrific gorge, both ends being anchored in solid rock. The Missisquoi River at this point has rocky banks so that the expense of anchorage was very small and made this form of construction the most economical that could be adopted. The bridge is not only firm and rigid vertically, but has great stability laterally, and is pronounced by the town authorities equal in rigidity and stability to any truss bridge which they ever saw. By making the stiffening truss of a suspension bridge heavy and strong, the panels short and well braced, a suspension bridge can be made of nearly equal rigidity to a truss bridge. There is no form of bridge more pleasing in outline than a suspension bridge. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
