Toronto, Nov.10, 1941.
On Friday I was passing through in a hurry and I stopped to look at the border in front of the restaurant at Brock's Monument and I must say I do not think I have seen a more beautiful border and I wish to congratulate you on the new and very effective planting of it. Considering the season of the year I think you deserve every credit for this very fine piece of work.
K.M. Broman, Esq.,

Niagara Falls, Ontario
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.
