General Manager

Toronto, November 3, 1941.


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

Dear Matt:

Thank you for your trouble on Saturday in doing everything you could to smarten up the appearance of the bridge plaza. It looked as if it had been in operation for years. The trees looked well and many people spoke to me about it. I hope you were sucessful in adding to your collection of photographs, although the day was not specially favourable.

I am enclosing a clipping containing a reference to the Chile pine. At the head of it it speaks of it as the grandfather of pines. Is this on account of its great size?

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.
