{ ' I 'HK illustration on the omjosUe page is that ofa Warren TrussSpan. Thisdesinn is 
I particularly weU adapted for hiRhway bridges of nitdiiini^paiis in lengths* 
from 30' to 105'. The nnniber of (lanels will, x>f cburse^ vary y/ith the length 

of S|WS1." . • t '" V i, 

ThiH desigtHs economical in first cost, and requires little or no attention for repair?- 

It is- an all riveted bridge without pins or nuts, and with reasonable attention will 
last lojiger than any other tyjx;|||n)ridge that can l)e used for highwax purposes. 

This illuKtratjon is taken tpni a span erected J>y us during Ufe suniuier of lyiis, 
and we would calf partidilar attention to otir method of .aw*y bracing, whiclAve^ha^-e 
no hesitation in claiming is the l)est on thje market. With thii t'jrace we claim it is 
next to impossible for the trus.ses to sway, and this is not the case with ordinarx 
mn^le bracing. It is swfayitig of this kind that very shortly weakens the tarrying * 
capacity of the bridge, and time causes the rivets to become loosie and theirheads to 
break off. ■ . S. 

• The cut shows the i)ridge with steel lattice railings, but tubular railings of gas 

pipe can be used and u somewhat less expensive.

lines of pipe railinKs on each tniss. Also if |>articular attention is 
paid to the illustrations it will Iw aetrn that the roadway is supported

Concrtte curbs c^n be fomieft on the' outer ed^es of the roadwax

Concrete Floors * 

• * . • ■ • . ,. ' 

THIC ciifoii the ojipositc pat^e illustrates (ileii Morris Bruise of six spans, hiiirt t)y ns iii ti^nS, for the* 
County of Brant. This illustration shows what we believe to be the longest continuous concrete 
floor on any highway bridge in Canada. The use of concrete doors is now almost universal, and we 
strongly recomnietui every municipality to have their bridges built so that concrete floors may 
be used at the time»the bridge is ere^ed, or soarrang^ that concrete floors may be put on any time in the 
future., It is a great mistake to build*bridges- of stich light capacity that timber floors must be n.sied forever, 
or sucl^ bridges'will retjuire to be reinforcetl or taken down altogether There are several very goo<l 
specifications for concr.ete floors, and ii) particular the Ontario Ciovernment sp^ification is reconuuended for 
your consii^eratron. It has also becoliie the custom of many municipalities iW cjilliug for tenders for high 
,way bridges to make it a part of the agreement that the Bridge Copipany shall put on tlie concrete floor. We 
consider this a mistake for tlie reason that most bridge companies' workmen know little regardiug concrete, and ' 
are not familiar wfth the handling of same, and it would bewise to make a sef>arate contract for floors, and pre- 
ferably the man who takes contract for the .sub structure should also take the contract for the concrete 
floor. We believe that you couW get concrete floors cheaper if built by the man who builds the sub-structure 
for the reason that he wiyj^havealiof his 'material there and plant for handling' same, and also having ex- 
perienced men he should certainly be able fb do a better job for less money and in less time than the 
inexperiencetl men of the Bridge Company. The cost 'of 6" reinforced concrete floors varies from 25 cents 
to 40 cents per square fodt jiccording to locatidn of bridge site, t '» ' -

Glen Morris Bridge bpilt by us in the Summer ofip^, 

•^ for the County of Brant and is a good ilhistration^f' a 
fii» hjghway bridge. The -total over all length of the fl.«r-^i 
this bridge is 460' and the clear width of the roadway id'. TR^; 
bridge consists of six spans, one each 6o>, -jn' and js', and thre«| 
Ns'each. This bridge was built to comply with the Ontario' 
C.overnnient si)ecitications and w e believe it to Ijc one of the very 
l»est highway bridges in Ontario. . '

The above is an illuatratioti of steel Warren Truss, sMn loo' long, erected by ua in the Town of Petrolia thtpc 
years ago. Thia is a good illnstration <^ i^nother Ipng span Hi§hway bridge built as a low truss. In tliis case, it was desireit 
to have.a low truss to ptrmit the moving and handling of oiraerricks without interference with overhead bfacing.

chi;apest steel bridge that can l>e ^-rectcd. You will note that it has 

w-oodeit joists and wtxiden rails, and also that it is placed on temporan- wooden 
ahutnients. While we do not 1)\ an\ means ajiprove of sncli a eheap strnetuu

certain sum of nioney, you will see that you can get a stet'l stmcture which can 
he place^ on almost any kind of temiM)rary ahutnients, and if snflicienf attention

}pOsite page shows a design for short span highway 
ve l^ave built a great number during the past 'five 
'shown is suitable for bridges in lengths from five feet 
up to thirty .five feet, the type for all lengths being exactly the same but the 
number of beams, depths and weightspf ^ame being governed by the length of 
spans, width of ro«iway, and the load to be carried. The iUtutration shows 
a wood' floor, but the majority of these spans are now built to carry concrete 
floors, and iri a great many cases the concrete is applied at once, but in other 
cases, a temporary timber floor is'used in the meantime as it is economical. 
By referring to page No. 28 you will note a concrete flooi- of another type wlii^ 
is equally applicable to either. ' *

spans, width of roadway and loads to he tarried The plan for the l)riHge shows the ordinar>

erected, but wootl floor. can be usetl in the meantrme, if desired.' We also show a crgs-s section 
of a. similar bridge illu.strating concrete floors placed on corrugated steel troughs." .Some 
I'lngineers and Officials of s<«ie Mui)icipalities prefer this style of floor rather l|ian the usual 
reinforced concrete slabs shown on plan for the bridge. It is immaterial to »w as to' the 
design of floor used,, but from an ettgineering point of view, we consider the coiiin-ete slabs 
superior to arches. ' , ^

Swing Bridges 

THE reqiiirenieiits for Swing Bridges are not very, sreat in Canada, 
lieing confined principally to the various canals in difTef^it parts 
of the country. Occasionally, however, it is necessary for a city 
or rural municipality to build a Swing Bridge, and as almost every case 
requires a peculiar design ofjits own, it is rather difficult to illustrate so 
many different types, but those shown on the following pages will 
prolMbly be of interest.

This cut .illustrates a light highway swing bridge erected by us, several years ago, at Clienioiig, being part of the lloating 
• bridge at that point, and is very similar in design to that shown on page No. 49, wltli the exception that T 
7 overhead bracing is omitted. this makes a very good type of fight highway swing. 




This cut illustrates a Iwb tail swing bridge built by us over the Welland Canal at the Town of Wellanil several 
rears a^o and is a very good illustration of Government practice in canaV swing bridges. .^i 
This is known as Alexandra' Bridge.

Water Tanks and Towers 

O^the opposite pa^e we illustrate steel tower and steel tank for use 
in connection with Municipal Water Works or manufacturing 
establishments. This shoCi the latest design for work of this 
kind. .We have built a^number of towers and tanks in various parts of 
Canada, and of many different, designs, heights, capacfties, etc. We can 
build reservoirs or tanks resting dirtct on, concrete foundations or can 
build steel towers with steel or wood tanks on top of .same. 

The illustration shaws a tank with spherical bottom, and we can ^Iso 
fitiild them with flat bottoms. /t ■ ' , * 

. Th^ illustration shows a steel -tank with wood roof resting on steel 
frame ^vork, and mair holes are provided for entrance into the lank. .\ 
laddtr extends fr<Hi\,the ground to the top of the tank, and insicfe the tank 
from top to bottom. • 

A balcony and failing is provided at the top of the tower and may be 
of any width required, and the flooring ftiay be of steel or wood, and the. 
balcony railing may l)e of pipe or lattice work and of any height or design 
required. *•

STOCK STEEL 
Beams, Angles; Channels, Plates, Etc. 

QX pa^LS No. i.^oaiid are illustrations of Stock VardsNo. i and 2 in connection with 
Lower and I'pper shops. It is cit.stoinary' for us to carry in stock at all times about 
.5.000 V>"s of -steel of various sections suclria%i Beams, Channels, Angles, Plates, Tees, 
Zees, Bars', Rods, etc. . etc., and our many years dfperience in carrying a stock of this kind 
enables us to select the moat suitable sizes, weights and lengths. OiVr stock is at all times well 
assorted and covers all the standard sizes and weights of Beams from 3» to 24" in depth and 
standard .sizes and weights of Channels from 4" to i,s« in depth and practically all the standard 
sizes and weights of Angles rolled by American and Kuropean .Mills This material is in lengths 
• varying from a few feet up to 60 feet. 

Our sitock of plates is very complete and covers material from 8« in width to 96" in width and 
in thickness varying from 316" to i" and in some special cases plates up to 1)4* in thickness. 

Wliile^ we do not «^ake a practice of carrying in stock Zees and Tees We ha\'e at different 
times a fe\^ odd sections that will be shown on our fortnightly stock lists. ■ < 

As well as the sections mentionetl above we have in stock at all times a considerable as,sortnicnt 
of Round and Square Steel Bars. ^ ■

' * Girdere 



TH !•: two cuts shoAjrn on the oppoMte page illustrate beam girders of which 
a great many are used for various purposes. In remodeUing the fronts 
of old buildings an<ian arranging the fronis of new buildings, it is found 
necessarx to use steel girders to support the britk work above. The use of 
such girders enables a large clear opening to be i(r4)%'ided, which would permit 
of subsequent alterations to the front of huildinW. without interference with 
the builduig proper. The illustrations show girdtrs consisting of two beams" 
which "IS usually found sufficient, the size and Weight of the bekms being 
governed by the leflgth of span and the loads to be carrietl. The upper 
illustration show* a bfeam girder in place. 

. In the fronts of.ordinary store buildings it is usual to have a clear open 
•space, but if necessary columns can be provided at the ends and any number 
of columns can be provided at intermediate points, in fact the girders can 
be designed and arranged to suit the conditions tiiat exist and to meet the 
viewsx)f the proprietor or contractors having the work in hand. 

On page No. 135 will be fouml illu.stratioiis showing cross .sections of .simi- 
lar iK-aui girders consisting of two and three' beams. 



('•irderS lilce this may 1)^ made of
