William White Collins Seymour
Tuesday 23 October
2 - 3pm
Join local historian p.a.morbid for a look at Victorian Middlesbrough's most colourful character, William White Collins Seymour. Seymour came to Middlesbrough in the 1860s and published a number of tracts criticising members of the Middlesbrough Council, as well as serving on the council in 1874. Acerbic, scurrilous, libellous & truthful, the final booklet was called The Evil Genius of Middlesbrough, and was directed at John Dunning, then Mayor, for whom Seymour had a special hatred. Tickets £2 – book a place on 01642 729002
