Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, MACHINE SHOP FOR THE C. W. HUNT COMPANY, AT WEST NEW BRIGHTON, STATEN ISLAND, N. Y. ^^HE CUT on the opposite page shows an iron roof built by us for the C. W. Hunt Company, at West New Brighton, Staten ®^® Island, N. Y., to cover the new machine shop lately built by them. The building is 42 feet wide by 202 feet long, trusses placed ten feet apart, and connected together by wrought iron purlins, and covered with slate. The trusses are designed to carry shafting near the sides, and through the entire length of the building at the center is placed a track, which carries a trolley car for moving material lengthways of the building. Underneath the trusses are placed rolled beams, as shown, securely fastened to the trusses, and the shafting is connected to these direct. The side walls are of brick, and there is not a particle of wood work used anywhere about the building, it being designed as an absolute fire proof manufacturing building. Notice that the lower chord of the trusses is stiffened to carry extra loads of shafting, etc. In the present case, the shaftirg is secured as noted, to I beams, running lengthways of the building, but these trusses are made so that the boxes that carry the shafting can be placed on top of the lower tie beams in the usual way, if desired. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
