The cards in this shoebox relate to Tindale's South East of South Australia place names project. Most of the cards (4 cm) are well ordered alphabetically (following Tindale's particular system), suggesting that they are in a more finished form than some of the other sections of the place names card collection. The remaining cards at the back of the group appear to be unsorted. Most entries are drawn from Tindale's manuscript materials, with Milerum (Clarence Long) and Alf Watson appearing as major sources. Note that Tindale often indicates whether a place is close to a clan or tribal boundary, and often describes the type of physical feature denoted. Also, cards often include data on tribes and boundaries (e.g., ethnonyms and camping places). See maps AA338/24/112-113, County Cardwell.
