Office of the Minister of Highways
Matt Broman, Esq.,1,2
Niagara Parks Commission,
Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Dear Mr. Broman:
I have read your memorandum covering the botanic garden with great interest. I do not think I will be ready immediately to accept your suggestions, but I shall keep them before me for later reference. In any event I think they are good and it may be possible to use some of them.
1 Matt Broman worked very closely with Thomas B. McQuesten on many of his projects in Hamilton and in Niagara. There is a plaque commemorating Matt Broman's work at the RBG near the Thomas B. McQuesten High Level Bridge. There is also a small lookout park named after him on the brow overlooking King's Forest Park in Hamilton. The series of letters beginning with "986" are all part of the Broman collection.
For more information on T.B. McQuesten see his biography.
