From: T.B. McQuesten

[ONTARIO CREST - shield and animals]

C. Ellison Kaumeyer
General Manager

Toronto, October 14th , 1941.

K.M. Broman, Esq.,1,2
The Niagara Parks Commission,
Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Dear Matt.,

I have your letter of October 8th. I could not answer it before as I was not in my office.

We took up the matter of these greenhouses before. I do not remember that there was any great economy in making the transfer but, as a matter of tactics I suggest to you that when we go ahead with any greenhouses as you suggest, they should be proper ones for their purpose. If you accept a makeshift the chances are it will not be wholly satisfactory and you will be put off with it for good. Will you think this over and we can talk about it the first time I see you.

With kind personal regards,
Believe me,
Faithfully yours,
T.B. McQuesten

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.

2 This document was originally numbered 986.1.036 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes.
