Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON CASTING SHOP FOR THE WATERBURY BRASS COMPANY, WATERBURY, CONN. THE BUILDING shown on the opposite page was built by us in 1886, for the Waterbury Brass Company, at Waterbury, Conn., for use as a casting shop, and is constructed entirely of iron, both the roof and the sides. The building is no feet long, and 52 feet wide between the walls, with an outside overhang eight feet wide. The roof is not designed to carry shafting or heavy loads of machinery, but is designed simply as a roof covering for a building liable to fire. The building is provided with wide doors at the sides and ends, so that teams can drive through, in order to deliver the raw material at the furnaces, and carry out the finished product. The overhang extends the whole length of the building on the side next to the railroad track, thus providing additional room for storing both raw material and finished product, at the same time protecting it from the weather, and placing it where it will be easily and quickly accessible. This is probably one of the most complete, well ordered and well constructed brass casting shops to be found anywhere in this country, being designed with especial reference for this kind of work by men of large experience. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
