Inscription.  Brady St. Bridge was a through-cantilever bridge designed by Albert L. Schultz in 1896 for highway and streetcar traffic crossing the Monongahela River. It was the first city-erected bridge that was toll free. The railings were recovered by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation during bridge demolition in 1978 and were donated to the Port Authority of Allegheny County in 1984 for the Station Square transit station.
