THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY,
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: BUCKFIELD, Me.
Gentlemen—The two iron bridges, which you built for us some four years ago,
are giving entire satisfaction, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to
others in want of first-class structures. Yours truly,
A. P. Bonney, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Lower Bartlett, N. H.
Gentlemen—Some four years ago, your company built a bridge for the town
of Bartlett. The bridge spans the east branch of the Saco River. Not a nut has
been turned on the bridge since built, and the only expense incurred since is painting
it over. It stands to-day the same as when built, and, for aught I know, as good.
The bridge we had across the stream before this bridge was built was a wooden one,
somewhat of the model of yours, but of single action, yours being double makes it
much stronger, and of iron, as much better and durable, as iron is over wood. We
have three covered bridges in town, and for wear this is worth the whole of them.
I can cheerfully recommend your bridge to any town that wants a good, durable,
and cheap bridge. Yours truly, G. W. M. Pitman, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Biddeford, Me.
Gentlemen—I desire to acknowledge a full approval of the splendid Parabolic
Truss Bridge lately furnished this city by your company. It is substantially without
deflection, notwithstanding the numerous weights it is required to sustain, and its
contour is faultless. Respectfully, etc., Samuel F. Parcher, Mayor.

The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : UXBRIDGE, MASS.
Gentlemen—The Parabolic Truss Bridge we bought of your company last summer, gives general satisfaction. It is strong and stiff, no shake or tremble when
teams pass over it, even if it be faster than a walk. It is also ornamental as well as
strong, which together, makes it a very desirable bridge to erect. After a trial
of six or eight months as compared with the many other iron bridges in the market,
all doubts are removed, and I call your Parabolic Truss Bridge superior to all
of them. Yours respectfully, Zadok A. Taft, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: South Canterbury, Conn.
Gentlemen—A letter written by your treasurer has just come to hand. The
Parabolic Truss Bridge, you built for us last summer, gives complete satisfaction to
us all. A few of my townsmen were bitter against it at first, but after observing it
properly tested are now loud in its praise, and consider it more economical than
a wooden bridge. There will hereafter be no more large wooden bridges built
in this part of the country. They will be of iron. Respectfully,
George F. Tillinghast, Selectman.
Berlin Iron Bridge Co. ; NASHUA, N. H.
Dear Sirs—Yours received. The bridge you built for the city speaks for itself
far better than I can. It is as solid as our granite hills. Truly yours,
A. M. Norton, Mayor.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : LUDLOW, Vt.
Gentlemen—The two iron bridges erected in the fall of 1883, also the one in
1885, have proven satisfactory. They have now been up long enough for us to be
able to say they are first-class work, and we can recommend your company and your
bridges to all parties. We would cheerfully give our time in recommending and
showing our bridges to all who wish to see them. Respectfully yours,
D. R. Sargent, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: North Sheldon, Vt.
Gentlemen—Yours received. Would say that I can heartily recommend your
bridge as first-class work, and gives entire satisfaction. In the last thaw the ice
jammed at the ends of the bridge so that it rose up from its abutments, but it came
back all right. It must be strong and well made to stand such a pressure.
Yours truly, J. A. Potter, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: South Oxford, N. Y.
Gentlemen—Yours of January 27th was duly received, and in reply would say
that the tax-payers of Oxford are much pleased with our bridge and think it is
a first-class one. I do not think that there are more than ten tax-payers in town
but what are pleased. Respectfully yours, J. B. Willoughby, Com. Highways.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Mayors' Office, City of Taunton, Mass.
Gentlemen—I desire to express to you my entire satisfaction with the two
concrete iron bridges which you have erected for this city during the present season.
For substantiality and convenience they are unsurpassed. Respectfully yours,
R. H. Hall, Mayor.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Torrington, Conn.
Gentlemen—We are glad to recommend your iron bridges. We have nine
of them in our town, some of them being subjected to heavy traffic, and we have
no hesitation in recommending them as being first-class in every respect. Some
of these bridges have been in use about five years, so that we have a good opportunity to judge of their merits, and we have no hesitation in recommending them
to other towns. Yours respectfully,
George A. Allen, E. C Hotchkiss, T. M. Sullivan, Selectmen.
