Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON BUILDING FOR THE STANLEY RULE AND LEVEL COMPANY, AT NEW BRITAIN, CONN. t I #HE BUSINESS of the Stanley Rule and Level Company, at New Britain, Conn., necessitates the storing of large quantities of ®^k lumber, in order to be thoroughly seasoned before being manufactured, as the superior quality of the goods manufactured by this company necessitate thoroughly well seasoned lumber. It is often necessary to keep this lumber on hand for some time, and the building shown on the opposite page was designed by us for storing lumber in such a way that it would be protected from the weather, and at the same time would allow the air free circulation around the lumber. The building is 20 feet wide from post to post, with an overhang eight feet in front on the open side, the trusses being placed 10 feet apart, and connected with angle iron purlins, covered with corrugated iron. The rear side of the building is covered, except for a distance of 18 inches on the bottom, which is left open to allow the free circulation of the air. The building is open on the front side, so that teams can drive through into the building when necessary, and the overhang in front protects these teams while loading and unloading. The plan commends itself particularly for storing purposes, where the material stored must be protected from the action of the elements, at the same time well ventilated and free to the action of the air. There is not a particle of wood work about the building in any way, shape, or manner, so that the risk from fire is limited—in fact there is no risk whatever from the building itself, as there is nothing to burn down.
