Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON BUILDINGS AND IRON ROOFS—Continued. The trusses should be well braced and well stiffened, not only against vertical motion, but also against lateral motion. The contraction and expansion of the iron work is uniform, so that it does not move the shafting and get it out of line. The iron work cannot get on fire and burn down, and the general appearance of an iron roof is much more ornamental than the old fashioned cumbersome wooden roof. We illustrate in the few following pages, some of the many iron roofs and iron buildings built by us, and invite parties in want of work of this class, to go and see these buildings and these roofs for themselves, or correspond with the parties for whom they were built. We are prepared to make plans, specifications, and estimates for all kinds of work in this line, and having had more experience in this class of work than any other company in America, we feel sure that we can give satisfaction. Parties contemplating new buildings, especially for manufacturing purposes, wiU find it advisable to correspond with us for plans and estimates. We keep a corps of competent civil engineers, skilled in this class of work, constantly employed, and when advisable, can send an engineer to consult with parties contemplating any work in our line. We are pleased to make special plans and estimates whenever desired, and are always glad to send one of our engineers with parties who wish to examine any work built by us, in order to explain the work. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
