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 dealing with this matter are: W9862h (986.1.035.1); W9862i (986.1.035.2); W9862j (986.1.035.3). The series of letters beginning with "986" are all part of the Broman collection.
For more information on T.B. McQuesten see his biography.
