FRANCIS A. LEAVITT, OF PORTLAND, MAINE.

AWNING SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 510,274, dated December 5, 1893.

Application filed February 14, 1893. Serial No. 462,311- (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that L'FRANOIs A. LEAVITT, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Portland, in the county of Cumberland and State of Maine, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Awnings; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention,

which will enable others skilled in the art to I which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings,'which form apart of this specification.

My invention relates to awnings, and isintended as an improvement upon the invention disclosed in Letters Patent granted to me March 15, 1892, No. 470,894.

The object of the present invention is to provide an improved construction of awning, whereby I secure superior advantages, with respect to efficiency and utility.

The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of parts, hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of an awning, constructed in accordance with my invention, showing the same applied to a window. Fig. 2 is a similar view, showing the awning partly elevated or hauled up. Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the side pieces turned up and hooked.

In the said drawings, the reference numeral 1 designates a window-frame, and 2 the awning cover, which may be of any ordinary or suitable construction.

The numeral 3 denotes a metal rod bent into a U-shape, the portion 5 of which is connected with the lower part of the cover 2,while its ends are pivoted to the window frame. The awning cover is of the usual shape and its upper edge is secured to the window-frame by means of screw-eyes 4. The triangular side pieces 6, of the cover, are provlded with eyes or rings 7, along their vertlcal edges through which pass the side ropes or cords 8, provided with rings 9, at their lower ends, which engage with hooks 10, secured to the window frame, below the pivotal points of the U-shaped bar. The upper ends of these side cords or ropes are secured to coiled springs 12, the opposite ends of which are connected with the awning-frame.

The numeral 13, designates the hoisting or elevating cords or ropes. These ropes are secured to the U-shaped bar and pass through the screw-eyes 4, and are connected together, as in the ordinary manner now in use.

A short distance above the hooks 10, are pins 14, with which the rings in the lower ends of the side pieces of the awning engage to hold the latter in place.v

Secured to the cover 2, on the inside thereof, is a hook 15, and secured to the outer side of the side pieces is a similar hook 16, with which the lower rings or eyes 7, engage when the side pieces are turned up for ventilating purposes said side pieces overlapping each other, as seen in Fig. 3.

The operation will be readily understood. When the awning is down, it will occupy the positionshown in Fig. 1. To raise the same, the lower eyes 7 are disconnected from the pins 14, thus disengaging the lower ends of the side pieces from the window-frame. By now pulling upon the ropes or cords 13, the U-shaped bar is turned upon its pivots, causing the awning cover to be elevated, the coiled springs allowing the side ropes or cords to move outwardly during the operation of raising, as seen in Fig. 2. When it is desired to raise the side pieces, when the awning is down, the rings 7 and 9 are disengaged from the pins 14 and hooks 10,.and the lower ends of said pieces are turned up, and said rings 7 engaged with the hooks 15 and 16, as seen in Fig. 3.

It is obvious that two hooks 15, may be provided so that either side piece may be raised up and hooked independently of the other; and each side piece is provided with a hook 16, so that when either of said side pieces is hooked to the cover the other side piece may be hooked to the hook 16, on said piece;

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- The combination with a window-casing and the U-shaped rod pivoted thereto, ofthe awning cover having triangular side pieces con- [O hooks on the inside of the cover and the outside of the side pieces substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereunto affixed my signature in presence of two Witnesses.

FRANCIS A. LEAVITT.
