Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON FLOORS. WHERE IT becomes necessary to build a fire proof building of more than one story, it becomes necessary to make the floors fire proof as well as other parts of the building. The illustration on this page is taken from a photograph of the inside of an iron fire proof building built by us in 1880, for the Seth Thomas Clock Company, of Thomaston, Conn. The reputation of the Seth Thomas Clock Company is world wide, and in order to meet the large demands for their goods, it became necessary to build additional works. The management, believing that it would be economical to build a first-class fire proof building, decided on the plan as shown. The building is three stories high, with brick walls, iron floors and iron roof—no wood work being used in any part of the building, except for the wearing surface of the floor and the window casings. Here we have a building which is absolutely fire proof as any building possibly could be, as the inside furnishings might burn out completely without endangering the walls cr floors. Parties contemplating buildings of this kind, will serve their interest by writing us for plans and estimates. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
