1932 Obituary[1]

"The Late Mr. A. B. Brady.— An engineer formerly prominent in the Queensland Public Service died recently at the age of 76. Mr. A. B. Brady, to whom we refer, was born in Manchester, and for some five years was on the staff of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. He afterwards became assistant to Mr. G. W. Stevenson, practising in Westminster, and later was successively appointed Surveyor of Dorking, Hunstanton, and Maldon, Essex. He went to Queensland in 1886 as assistant engineer in the railway department, became Assistant Engineer for bridges in 1887, and engineer for bridges in the Public Works Depot in 1889. He subsequently held the appointment of Government Architect and Engineer for Bridges, and later was Under-Secretary for Public Works. Among his best-known works were the Victoria Bridge and the Lamington Bridge. For a paper on the former he was awarded a Crampton Prize by the Institution of Civil Engineers, and for one on the latter, a Telford Premium. Mr. Brady was retired on reaching the age limit in 1922."
