Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON POLICE STATION AT WATERBURY, CONN. T"T7HE CUT on the opposite page shows the iron work for a Police Station built by us for the City of Waterbury, Conn. e) J^fe The side walls are of brick and stone. In the centre of the building, with a corrider on each side, there are placed two rows of jail cells, ten cells in each row—thus offering accommodations for twenty prisoners without using the corrider. Each cell is made with a back and sides of solid plate iron, thus preventing any communication whatever between the occupants of the different cells. For the purpose of light and ventilation the tops of the cells are made of iron lattice, and, in order to prevent violent and insane prisoners from making any fastenings to the roofs of cells for the purpose of hanging themselves, a layer of fine wire netting is placed between the lattice bars, so that it is absolutely impossible to make any attachment whatever to the top of the cells. The front is made of solid plate, except the grated door, which is provided with a slide through which food can be passed without unlocking the door. In each cell is an iron cot bed thoroughly riveted to the sides and floor, making it perfectly immovable. This is probably one of the best designed police stations in the United States for a city of the size of Waterbury, as it combines a good, comfortable place for the detention of prisoners, at the same time, a safe and reliable place of confinement. We should be pleased to furnish plans and estimates to parties desiring work in this line, either in iron or steel. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
