W9862s TO MATT BROMAN from his associate, T.B. McQuesten
Feb 5 1942
To: Matt Broman, Niagara Falls, Ontario.
From: T.B. McQuesten

Office of Minister of Highways

Toronto, February 5, 1942

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

Dear Matt:

Mr. R.M. Smith has sent on to me your report to him of January 27th regarding planting. I am very much pleased with what you have done. I note in your description of the stock you have in your temporary nursery at Black Creek that there is no mention of thorn trees. I hope that you will continue the policy of making a complete hedge of this as far as practicable. I think they are very beautiful and valuable shrubs and will be most useful in keeping off snow.

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.
