Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.. Thompson, Conn Dear Sir—We received your letter dated August I Ith, and in reply will say, we are well pleased with the bridge, and if we ever have to buy another bridge, we shall buy the same kind of a bridge; and everything was as Mr. Towne agreed to have it. This is the way we feel. Yours, etc., George H. Nichols, First Selectman. s have built another bridge in this t 1 for a new board Berlin Iron Bridge Co.. Maine, Broome Co., N. Y. Gentlemen—We have in this town five iron bridges built by four different companies, one—the last one erected—by the Berlin Iron Bridge Co. When it became my duty to buy an iron bridge I carefully examined the bridges in this and other towns, among them the one built by your company, and decided on one of your Parabolic Truss Bridges, and now that it is completed, I am satisfied that I made no mistake in my selection. All who have seen the bridge pronounce it ahead in all points, of any bridge we have, and it gives me pleasure to say that all your agreements and the contract have been fully kept, and I can heartily recommend your company and bridges to all. Yours very respectfully, T. T. Lawton, Commissioner of Highway. We have built two iron bridges for this town since above was written. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Jewett City Mills, Jewett City, Conn. Gentlemen—The bridge you have recently built for us in Jewett City gives entire satisfaction, and has stood, without any apparent settling, the severe tests of heavy teaming during the repairs which are going on here. Yours respectfully, W. A. Slater. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: ' Braintree, Mass. Gentlemen—The three iron highway bridges erected by the Berlin Iron Bridge Co., for the town of Braintree, Mass., have given general satisfaction to the citizens, and are very acceptable to the undersigned as agents of the town. J. M. Knight, J. F. Bates, H. A. Monk, Selectmen. Since above was written, we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Egremont, Mass. Dear Sirs—The bridge put up by your company in the village of South Egremont, on September last, meets the approbation of the entire community. It not only adds greatly to the beauty of the place, but we, the Selectmen, are bound to consider it a first-class structure in every respect. Yours, etc., H. L. Rowe, Chairman of Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : STONINGTON, Conn. Gentlemen—In reply to your letter of the l8th inst., I would state, that the Iron Plate Girder Bridge with concrete roadway, built by you over Pawcatuck River, between this town and the town of Westerly, R. I., in 1885, has thus far proved satisfactory to us. Before deciding upon any particular plan of bridge, I made a tour of the State for the purpose of examining and inquiring into the merits of the various styles of bridge, and sought the opinions of the local authorities relative thereto. The result of my observations convinced me that an Iron Plate Girder Bridge, with a concrete roadway, supported on iron cylinder piers, would be best adapted for the locality in question; and my reasons therefor may be briefly summarized as follows : 1st. It would obviate the presence of high and unsightly truss work in the central portion of the two villages and on the main thoroughfare connecting them. 2d. The concrete roadway would obviate the disagreeable din of a plank roadway, and would save the expense of frequent repairs that must of necessity be accompanied with a plank covering, especially in a live business locality like this, where the passing of teams is incessant, and with daily loads of from three to five tons; last, but not least by any means, the economy in first cost, and the substantial, durable character of the structure. As a matter of fact, strangers, in crossing the bridge over the concrete roadway, have aught to remind them of but one continuous street. Very respectfully, Geo. D. Stanton, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Wallingford, Conn. Gentlemen—In reply to your inquiry respecting your bridges, would say that I have made inquiries, and, as far as I can learn and by my own observations, they have proved perfectly satisfactory. Yours very respectfully, Chas. M. Jones, Town Agent. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Claremont, N. H. Gentlemen—About eight years ago, your company built an iron bridge for this town, 108 ft. span, 20 feet roadway, and two walks, 5 feet each. The bridge has proved perfectly satisfactory, and we can cheerfully recommend it to anyone wanting a bridge. Isaac H. Long, ") M. S. Rossiter, [-Selectmen. Henry S. Sanders, J Office of The Russell Mfg. Co., Middletown, Conn. Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : The iron bridge at Middlefield, which you built five years since, has given entire satisfaction to ourselves and the public travel, and is as good as new. The small bridges connecting our mills at South Farms, constructed for fire escapes, in compliance with the laws of the State of Connecticut, relating to protection of persons employed in mills in case of fire alarm, are very strong, durable, and artistic in design. Very respectfully, H. G. Hubbard, President. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
