To all whont it may concern:

Be it known that I, \VHITCOMB It. JUDsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Towers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof, and in which- Figure 1 represents in elevation the character of the design, while its form in cross section is shown in Fig. 2.

The leading feature of my design consists of a skeleton structure tapering from its base to its top, having external galleries at different heights and surmounted by a doublefilQl'Ol colonnade galleryand observatorysupportin g a cupola or dome.

The tower is of circular or cylindrical form in cross-section, and consists, essentially, of vertical ribs A, resting upon and extending from a suitable base B to and supporting a doubleticred gallery t, l),colonnade in style. An interior spiral or winding roadway E, extending from the base to the top, unites with the ribs A at suitable distances apart as a single structure, and appears in elevation through them. At. suitable distances apart external horizontal galleries F are provided, having the appearance of exterior bands around the structure, while at the top a col onnade-gallery C surlnounts the structure and supports a smaller eolonnade-gallery I) or observatory, which is capped by a dome G, all presenting to the eye the combined effect of great height and symmetry of proportion.

I claim- The design [or a tower, substantially as herein set forth and illustrated.
