Although the office address was City Road, the Brades steel works was southeast of Brades Rd. where it crosses the Birmingham Canal. The area remains industrial today, although the only visibly old structure on the site is the iron fence along Brades Rd. Brades Tavern is just up the road.

This was my family's business started by my grandfather and his business partner. It was not a sub brand of William Hunt and Sons in the latter years being solely owned by my Grandfather Uncle and father. By a quirk of fate I now live near to the factory and the old office block still remains. The business was dissolved in 1982.
