Description:

Rare map showing the stock routes and wells from Leigh Creek to to the Queensland border via Innamincka. The natural springs that run right through this country enabled the Aborigines, explorers and pastoralists like Sidney Kidman to travel and move live stock in this country.

The map shows the additional proposed water supplies and railway to support the movement of stock.

Mapmaker:

Alexander Bain Moncrieff (1845-1928)

Moncrieff helped Peter Scratchley to design and construct fortifications at Largs Bay and Glanville upon their completion he became resident engineer for the Great Northern Railway at Quorn. In 1888 Moncrieff returned to Adelaide as engineer-in-chief, succeeding H. C. Mais. He designed and implemented far-sighted drainage schemes in the south-east(1911). His Barossa dam was hailed by an American engineering journal as fit ‘to rank with the most famous dams in the world’ for ‘the boldness of its design’.
