TEXTThe Scherpe & Koken Architectural Iron Company, whose great factory and works are conveniently situated on the Missouri Pacific railroad and old Manchester road, and whose offices and warerooms are located in the Granite Building at the corner of Fourth and Market streets, is one of the strongest and most thoroughly representative firms in this interesting and delicate line in St. Louis. Possessed of ample resources, the capital being 100,000, and perfected facilities, they have secured the patronage of our leading architects, etc., and enjoy a high reputation for the style and elegance of their work. Their premises at Chouteau avenue cover an area of six acres, and are equipped with a 150 horse power steam engine, and all the necessary appliances for the successful prosecution of the industry. 250 hands are constantly employed, among whom the most perfect organization is observable, and over every detail the energetic officers exercise a close personal supervision. Mr. John F. Scherpe is the president and treasurer; Mr. F. C. Schventhaler, assistant manager, and Mr. A. G. Fish, secretary, all gentlemen of great prominence in business and financial circles, and experienced in all the processes of the iron working manufacture. Among the contracts executed by this establishment, may be mentioned the Jefferson avenue bridge, the Connecticut Mutual Life building, the American Central building, Cotton Exchange building, Globe Democrat Printing Company's building, U. S. Custom House building, Houser building, Boatmen's Bank building and the well-known Laclede building, erected at a cost of 500,000. This line embraces all kinds of ornamental and structural wrought and cast iron work, such as columns, store fronts, beams, girders, roof trusses, doors, shutters, cornices, arches, railings, area and sky lights, balconies, straps and bolts. In fact, any and all kinds of iron work used in buildings, bridges, etc., many of the articles being distinguished by extreme beauty of design and finish, exhibiting the highest degree of artistic merit as well as reliability as to strength and durability. The trade from this center extends to all parts of the United States, and has, during recent years, assumed such proportions and been characterized by such annual increases, as to excite the most hopeful anticipations for a prosperous and brilliant future. They solicit correspondence and mail a beautiful catalogue free upon application, and those who have anything in their line we would advise calling for estimates before placing orders.
