Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Sandisfield, Conn. Gentlemen—The iron bridge you built for us five years ago, spanning the Farm- ington River between this town and the town of Tolland, has given entire satisfaction. J. M. Fuller, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn.: Malone, N. Y. Gentlemen—Your favor of the 28th received, and replying would say that the bridge you built for this town three years ago is all you claimed for it. It has given cood satisfaction. We have not laid out one cent on it since it was built. Iron bridges are far superior to wooden. Wallace H. Jones, Com. of Highways. e have built another bridge in this town for a new board The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. . Lake Village, Conn. Gentlemen—The bridge which you built for us some four years ago at the outlet of the lake, is a strong permanent structure, and has given entire satisfaction in every respect. When our bridge at Lake Village is in need of repairs I shall recommend an iron bridge from your company. Yours truly, Steven S. Ayer, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Danielsonville, Conn. Gentlemen—It gives me pleasure to hear, and talk with the people of the town of Killingly and Brooklyn, Conn., in reference to the bridge you have recently erected for us across the Quinebaug River. All speak highly of the structure, and I as chairman of the board who contracted with you, will say in behalf of said board, that your contract is more than filled. You gave us a better bridge than we contracted for. Yours truly, E. R. Burlingame, Chairman Selectmen. Killingly, and Chairman Building Committee. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Hartwick Seminary, N. Y. Gentlemen—Your favor of Jan. 31st received. In reply would say the bridges I purchased of your company were satisfactory in every respect. Respectfully yours, H. E. KlNNE, Commissioner of Highways. 77*,? Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : AvocA, N. Y. Gentlemen—We have eleven of your bridges in our town ; we have also some bridges in our town built by other companies but your bridges are liked the best. We are well pleased with them and think we have the best bridge we can get for the money they have cost us. Respectfully yours, L. Mathewson, Commissioner of Highways. We have built two Iron Bridges for this town since above % The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Campton, N. H. Gentlemen—The iron bridge erected by the Berlin Iron Company gives good satisfaction and all are pleased with it. Yours respectfully, C. W. Pulsifer, A. P. Rowe, D. B. Pulsifer, Selectmen. Since above was written we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : NORTHFIELD, N. H. Gentlemen—The iron bridges that our town bought of you in 1881, have proved satisfactory. We have had no repairs to make on them, but to keep them painted. We had the driveways concreted in 1885, and we like it. Yours respectfully, Frank H. Hill, For the Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. ; Great Barrington, Mass. Gentlemen—Your letter asking me my opinion of your bridges, received. We have nine of them here, which have been built within the last ten years. They have proved satisfactory, and I would gladly recommend them to anyone wishing to build a bridge. For safety aud durability, as well as workmanship, they cannot be excelled. Yours truly, W. W. Langdon, Chairman Selectmen. Since above was written we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Waterbury, Conn. Gentlemen—The 11 iron bridges which we have had in our town of your make are giving entire satisfaction. The spans vary from 40 to 205 ft , and are all Parabolic Truss. Some of these bridges are subjected to the heaviest city traffic, as our truck teams cross them almost every hour of the day, but under this severe and heavy traffic they show no danger of rattling or vibrating in any way. We prefer your Parabolic Truss Bridge to any bridge made, as we have had experience with other makes and are now taking down another iron bridge, which has been put up only about ten years, and have purchased one of your Parabolic Truss Bridges to replace it. This is the second bridge we have taken down within a few years, to be replaced by your Parabolic Truss Bridge. We consider your Parabolic Truss Bridge the best and most complete road bridge, both in strength and workmanship, of any bridge manufactured, and have no hesitation in recommending your company and your bridge to others in want of first-class work. Yours truly, Benj. Sedgwick, J. B. Doherty, Selectmen. I fully concur in the recommendation of Benj. Sedgwick, Selectman, in relation to the Parabolic Iron Bridge made by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company of East Berlin, Conn. My experience with these bridges in Waterbury, Conn., will warrant the endorsement. Henry Boughton, Mayor of Waterbury. We have built six Iron Bridges for the city and town of Waterbury since the above was written besides 18 spans of bridge for the Meriden, Waterbury and Connecticut River Railroad Company. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
