Adams joined the Public Works Department in 1869. Working principally in the neo-Gothic style dominant in Bombay at this time, Adams designed over 25 buildings in the city. His commissions included the Wilson College and the Royal Bombay Yacht Club. In this photograph of the front view of the Male Ward at St George's Hospital we can see that the building is punctuated with arcades and has a high pitched roof.
