dc.description.abstract • Opsomming: Die artikel handel oor die oorsprong van Indwe, 'n maatskappydorp wat in die noordoostelike Kaap geleë is. In die ontwikkeling van die gebied tussen 1880 en 1896 het botsings oor land, instroming van kapitaal, en steenkoolmynbou almal 'n rol gespeel. Die dorp self was in 1896 deur E. Gilbert Hall vir die Indwe Railway, Collieries and Land Company opgemeet. Daling in steenkoolmynbou het van Indwe 'n klein dorpie gemaak, maar sy geskiedenis belig 'n hele aantal temas wat van belang is in die geskiedenis van stadsbeplanning in Suid-Afrika.
dc.description.abstract • Summary: The article recounts the Origins of Indwe, located in the northwestern Cape, as a planned company town. In the development of the town, conflict over land, influx of capital and the mining of coal all played a part between 1880 and 1896. The town itself was laid out for the Indwe Railway, Collieries and Land Company by a surveyor named E. Gilbert Hall. The decline of the coal mines left Indwe a small and declining town, but its history allows a number of themes to be explored which are significant in the history of planning in South Africa.
