Sketches, mainly in pencil and crayon, made by Olive Muriel Pink of flowers found in the north of South Australia, Central and North Australia. The majority were made between June and December 1930, after a five year drought in Central Australia had broken earlier that year, at various places along the railway between Port Augusta and Alice Springs, especially Beltana, Callanna Resevoir and
Edwards Creek in South Australia and Finke, Horseshoe Bend and Rodinga in the Northern Territory, and a few at Darwin, the McDonnell Ranges and one near The Granites. Later sketches were made in various parts of Australia between 1931 and 1960, but often without a note of the place and date. The sketches were often hurriedly made on pieces of thin, cheap paper, or even pieces of cardboard or brown paper. Some were coloured with crayon and a few, more finished drawings were coloured with water colours.
