Bromley became director of the Federal Theater Project?s Los Angeles puppet unit,. After the demise of the Federal Theater Project, Bromley continued his work as an active member of the Los Angeles Guild of Puppetry, and edited its publication Puppet Life. Bromley toured the world doing nightclub performances. Bob was the first to present puppets on England’s BBC television in 1934-1938.

Having a selection of Bromley’s puppets is a significant addition to the IPM collection.
