Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON FOUNDRY ROOF OF THE RUSSELL & ERWIN MANUFACTURING CO. NEW BRITAIN, CONN. T"T7HE ROOF illustrated on the opposite page was designed by Mr. T. S. Bishop, the Chief Engineer of The Russell & Erwin ® I © Manufacturing Company, at New Britain, Conn., to cover their foundry, and is 80 feet wide by 150 feet long. The construction differs somewhat from that shown in the other illustrations, in the fact that the rafter is made of wood, and the balance of the truss is made of iron. The trusses were not designed to support shafting, but simply to carry ordinary snow and wind loads, together with the weight of the roof boards and slate. The trusses are connected together by wooden purlins, covered with two inch planed and matched pine, and covered with slate. Along the ridge, the whole length of the building, there is a skylight and ventilator, which affords ample light and ventilation. The gable walls are also provided with large windows, covering nearly the entire face of the building, which gives ample light, and, when necessary, can be used for ventilating purposes. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT. U. S. A.
