Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON ROOF TRUSSES OF THE FOOT GUARDS ARMORY, AT HARTFORD, CONN. Y^^HE BUILDING of which a cross section is shown on the opposite page was designed by John C. Mead, Architect, Hartford, Conn., as ® J^ an Armory for the Foot Guards of Hartford, Conn. The building is 77 ft. span, and the drill room is 114 feet long, making an open space of sufficient size for the evolutions of a large body of troops. The construction is somewhat peculiar and differs slightly from that shown in the other illustrations from the fact that the trusses are placed 14 feet apart, and at each panel point connecting the trusses is placed a wrought-iron purlin which supports wooden rafters placed crossways of the building which wooden rafters carry the roof boards placed lengthwise of the building, as shown. Extending entirely around the hall, except at one end, is a gallery supported by the iron roof trusses, as shown on the plan, leaving the floor entirely free, at the same time allowing seating capacity for a large number of spectators. When it is desirable to place the trusses more than 10 feet apart this form of construction particularly commends itself, as the trusses can, if necessary, be placed even 30 feet apart, by increasing the size of the purlins which connect the trusses at the panel point. The roof also illustrates a very neat way of supporting side galleries without obstructing the floor of the room by posts. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
