AbstractNewspaper article: "The old and the new at Seymour. This oak tree is believed to have been planted in 1853 on the founding of the town. Next to it stand newly planted poles to carry ESCOM electric power to the inhabitants. Gangs of construction workers are erecting the power lines and the first line in the town has about been completed. Private contractors are wiring dwellings. To start with there will be more than 20 consumers who will be connected up to the distribution lines. Distribution will be undertaken by ESCOM.”
