The new edition of Sweet's Index, which has
just been delivered, has a clearly arranged and concise catalogue
of all the productions and their applications of the AMERICAN LUXFER
PRISM COMPANY, which will be found to be of great convenience to the
ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL, LONDON
The Cathedral was begun in 1675, according to designs by Sir
Christopher Wren; taking the place of the old cathedral of the Eleventh
to Thirteenth Centuries, which was destroyed in the great fire of 1666.
It was first used for divine service in 1697 and was completed in 1710,
the cost being about $3,500,000. In plan and architecture it is akin to
St. Peter's at Rome, but only one-half as great in area, and relatively
longer and narrower. Its dimensions are 500 by 118 feet; length of
transepts 250 feet; inner height of dome, 225 feet; height to top of
cross, 364 feet; diameter of dome, 112 feet; the diameter of that of
St. Peter's being 139¼ and of the Pantheon 143 feet.
The Luxfer Reinforced Concrete Prism Sidewalk is
being installed wherever good permanent work of the best kind is desired.
