Patrick Brady ( -1872) of Victorian Railways

1872 Obituary [1]

Death of Patrick Brady, C.E. This gentleman, who has for many years been connected with the construction of the Victorian railways, died at St. Kilda, near Melbourne, on the 3rd of September.

His principal works are the construction of many of the more important bridges on the Melbourne, and Ballarat, and Sandhurst Railways, and the last completed was the large goods shed lately opened at Batman's Hill, Melbourne.

His modest and retiring disposition made him but little known beyond the profession in these colonies; but by his brethren he was greatly esteemed.

His remains were followed by a number of friends to the grave; amongst the pall bearers was Mr Thomas Higinbotham, Engineer-in-Chief of Victorian railways
