Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: HUNTSVILLE, Conn. I Dear Sirs—The iron bridge placed by your company across Housatonic River between this town and Salisbury some two or more years, ago, gives the best of satisfaction to the traveling public. Very heavily loaded teams seem to make but little impression on it, and they travel across with perfect confidence. Yours truly, M. U. Dean, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Jay, N Y. Dear Sirs—We have one of your bridges in our town, span 128 feet, roadway 18 feet, two sidewalks six feet each, put up in 1881, and gives perfect satisfaction in every way.

We, as town officers, would say that your bridge gives the best satisfaction of any we have in use, and so far, we cannot see but what they are, and have done all that they were recommended to do. We would truthfully recommend your Parabolic Truss Bridges to any towns who intend to buy an iron bridge. Respectfully yours, Abram Hutchings, Com. of Highways. C. M. Martle, Town Clerk. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Le Roy, N. Y. Dear Sirs—We three Highway Commissioners, also the town people, consider we have an excellent bridge, and it gives good satisfaction.

Gentlemen—I am much pleased with the three iron bridges you erected last summer for the town of New Hartford, and it gives me pleasure to recommend them. Yours truly, Chas. H. Fuller, Com. of Highways. Office of City Engineer, Manchester, N. H. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Gentlemen—The bridge recently completed by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company in this city is of the following dimensions: at the west end, 159^ feet, of trestle 40 feet wide; bridge across the Merrimac River 411 feet, divided into three equal spans. This bridge is a double-deck bridge, the lower driveway being 18 feet clear, without sidewalks, the upper, 26 feet driveway, with six feet walks on each side; total width, 40 feet. This is followed by 404 feet of iron trestle, then a 54^ feet double-deck bridge across the lower canal, so called, the lower deck having two driveways, 15 feet each in the clear, then terminating with 50 feet of iron trestle, making 1,076 feet of bridging, 40 feet wide, consisting of 26 ft. drive and two six ft. sidewalks. There is also an additional bridge of 53^ feet span across the upper canal, so called. At the completion of the first contract with the Berlin Iron Bridge Company, a committee of civil engineers and master mechanics was appointed to make a thorough examination of the workmanship, material, and strength of the bridge. This examination proved highly satisfactory. A strain test, probably as severe as any to which the bridge will ever be subjected, was applied in several different forms, and showed a deflection of from 26-100 to 42-100 of s>n inch, the last being obtained by a sudden jar at the center of the middle span, where these tests were taken. I shall take pleasure in recommending your work and showing our bridge to any party in want of first-class work. Respectfully, Geo. H. Allen, City Engineer. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
