['Compiled from exisitng maps of the early Explorers, of Official Surveys, and of Chewings, Madigan, Terry and Mackay, by H. H. Finlayson with additional data along the Author's Travelling Routes. 1931 - 1935.']

Supplementary to: 'Journal of Visit to the Rawlinson Range area in the Great Western Desert by Norman B. Tindale. 24 October - 25 November 1963' (AA 338/1/26).

Annotated map of southwestern Central Australia compiled by Hedley Herbert Finlayson (see AA 93) showing author's travelling routes, sources of water, homesteads and 'Approx. western limit of Stock (1935)'. Notes by Tindale in india ink point to Lightening Rock on Western Australia border (no date), and to a cave south of Musgrave Ranges: 'Naryilka. J. E. Johnson sacred cave 24 May 1936'. Additional annotations in black pen include Aboriginal place names recorded by Tindale during the Rawlinson Range expedition, dated '31 Oct. - Nov. 1963'. A note in pencil reads: 'Strehlow [T. G. H.] to Intea c.1935-6'. Scale '21 miles to 1 [inch ]'.

An archivist's note on reverse reads: 'AA 93, Accession 528, Finlayson' [date of accession unknown]. However, this published map was used and annotated by Tindale and has therefore been included with the Tindale material.

This item contains references to: Northern Territory; South Australia; Western Australia.
