Fred Flatman communicated with Thomas McQuesten regarding construction projects. See also W-MCP7-1.017.
We might add here a note about the lifesize iron flowers that grace the top of the Whitehern garden wall at the back of the garden: holly-hocks, sunflower, and?
They were made by Fred Flatman, the same iron-worker craftsman who made the Hendrie Gates at the RBG and the Navy Hall Gates at Niagara.
Box 14-126 states: "The wrought iron flowers set into the stone wall continued to decorate the gardens all year round. Fred Flatman, a local craftsman, had continued the garden's ornamental theme when he fashioned these unique objects of folk art without the use of a mould; instead he worked the metal with anvil and hammer, creating each leaf in a unique and totally distinct way."
