Dear Mr. Broman:-
At the meeting of the Board last evening the Board engaged you as a consultant in landscaping including preparation of plans for all lands under the jurisdiction of the Board and lay-outs for future properties acquired together with specifications, working plans and supervision of these developments for a retaining fee of $250.00 per month commencing January 1st, 1953 which can be terminated by either party on two months' written notice. Kindly confirm.
Yours very truly
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 Broman's. This document was originally numbered 986.1.106 but has been renumbered for cataloguing purposes
For more information on T.B. McQuesten see his biography.
