1975 400 Feet High

75 0326
March 26, 1975

Cable TV came to Soperton, and the first channels were not from satellite. They were Georgia broadcast channels with signal caught by antennae on a 400 ft tower, hauled from Texas and put up this week 35 years ago. Your trusty photographer, although afraid of heights, went to the top on a very cloudy day to capture the view. He made two shots, the film ran out, and he forgot to carry a spare roll.

Others that week: Mrs. Rita Burke with her blooming tulips, Herbert Burns with a couple of captured beavers, a slight accident near Cameron, coloring contest winners, a new tobacco curer being unloaded from rail car, school bus trip.
