Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON ROOF AND TRESTLE WORK FOR THE BURLINGTON CITY WATER WORKS, AT BURLINGTON, VT. IP THIS BUILDING is designed for use in storing coal—the severe winter weather in this climate necessitating the storing of large quantities of coal during the winter months, as navigation closes very early in the season. The building is 98 feet long by 40 feet wide, and is connected with a dock by a trestle 42 feet long, which trestle carries a car, and at the dock end a pair of scales, to use in weighing the coal. The roof is so constructed that the cars can pass through the whole length of the building, thus allowing the coal to be spread uniformly, and saves much expense in handling. Between the roof trusses at the center, are placed stringer beams, upon which the ties and rails are laid, the same as in the ordinary railroad bridge, and upon these rails the dump cars are free to travel back and forth. The roof trusses are connected with iron purlins, and covered with corrugated iron, making a building absolutely fire-proof, for the reason that there is not a particle of wood work about it to take fire, except the ties for the car track. This plan commends itself particularly to parties storing large quantities of coal, as making a safe and economically constructed building. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
