This invention relates to improvements in
hangers for building eaves troughs or gutters;
and the invention has reference, more partic
ularly, to an adjustable hanger for such purpose.
Eaves troughs or gutters must be supported
from a building wall to extend along and below
hangers, and without necessity for the removal
of the trough or gutter supported thereby.
Other objects of this invention, not at this time
more particularly enumerated, will be under
stood from the following detailed description of
the same.
Illustrative embodiments of this invention are
shown in the accompanying drawings, in which:
