To @ZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that LHENRY B. SKEELE,a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, county of Cook, State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Rooiin g- Tiles,of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to that class of tiles which are made to interlock with one another at their meeting edges.
It consists of details hereinafter fully de-.
scribed, and particularly pointed out in the claims.
Figure l is a plan view of a section of roof laid with my tile. Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of a tile. Fig. 3 is a perspective vieW.- Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section on lines 4 4, Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a cross-section on lines 5 5, Fig. 1.
A represents the iiat portion of the tile; B, the roll portion; C C', the channel on the upper side, formed by the tongues a a', extending along the end and edge; D, the channel on the under side at the lower end formed by the tongues b b, and E the channel on the under side, extending along the edge and formed by the overlappin g curl e ofthe roll B and the tongue f.

tongues a' a in the same manner along the edges, the edge e being aprolongation of the roll and is brought down close to the face of the tile below it, vmaking a tight joint. The tongue f is made with a ledge f to bring its outer face flush with the outer face of a in Order to make a joint that may be readily sealed or pointed up from the inside. The tongue f extends alongv the edge part Way only, leaving spaces at each end for the adjoiningtile. Theuppercornerof Bisnotched at g g in order to allow the adjoining edges to fit together. In this manner it will be seen I make a roof having the continuous roll-tile form, with the fiat channels between, making a handsome effect and at the same time Obtain the tight impervious joints of an interlocking tile.

1. The herein-described roofing-tile consist ing of the combination of the flat portion A, the roll portion B, larger below than above, `the tongues a, a on the upper face, and the tongues b, o on the under face, which extend clear across both the flat and the roll portions and which iit into one another, and the tongues a', a/ on the upper face, and the eX- tended portion e of the roll and tongue f on the under face" of the roll which fit into one another, all substantially as 'shown and described.
