The following quote is from an article in The Western Australia from Wednesday 5th Mar 1935, page 16:
Nine Fire Towers. During the past 12 months the scope of fire detection throughout the forest areas of the South-West had been extended by the erection of four additional fire towers, one near Sawyer's Valley, one at Teesdale (near Dwellingup) , one on Mt. Keats and one on Mt. William, in the Yarloop area.
