If deings, which form a part of the same. sired,.also, the body of the block may be suit- This invention relates to building-blocks, ably reinforced by the use of suitable grids, and relates especially to blocks formed of conrods, or wires embedded in the concrete or crete or similar material and provided with other material of which it is made. Each l 5 integral projecting supporting-shelves. shelf may, if desired, be provided with inter- 5 In the accompanying drawings, in which mediate upturned ridges to form a series of the same reference-numeral refers to similar parallel pockets or supporting-grooves 16, parts in the several figures, Figurel is a perwhich may be given any desired shape for the spective view showing an embodiment of reception of cables, pipes, or the like. 2 this invention.

We do not,

therefore, desire to be limited to the details of the disclosure which has been made in this case; but

What We claim as new, and what we desire to secure by Letters Patent, is set forth in the appended claims:

1. The building-block having a body provided With an alining groove extending around the same and provided with a plurality of supporting-shelves projecting from one face of said block, said shelves having an upturned outer edge and being reinforced-by a metallic reinforce embedded in said block, each of said shelves being provided with ribs to form a plurality of supportinggrooves in its upper face.

2. The buildingblock formed of reinforced concrete comprising a body formed with an alining groove and with supportingshelves having pockets formed integral with said block and extending outward from one face of the same.

3. The building block formed of reinforced concrete comprising a body provided with supporting-shelves having pockets formed integral With said body and extending outward from the face of the same. 7

4. The building block comprising a body, provided with supporting shelves having pockets formed integral with said body and extending outward from the face of the same.
