Niagara Parks Commission,
Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Thank you for your letter of August 30th with enclosures. I wish I had known you were going north, as I might have given you letters to some of the offices up there, who would have assisted you on your way. I would like you to see the area from Port Arthur east to Long Lac, which we are now continuing by closing the gap in the highway across Ontario from Long Lac to Hearst.
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.
