Abstract When pituri was traded throughout Central Australia it was carried in beautiful bags like this one. This bag was collected by J.A. Coghlan, the manager of Glenormiston station on the Georgina River, which was very close to the main pituri gathering areas west of the Mulligan River. Looking at the bag pictured it seems stagnant. Museum photographs reproduce stark realities, a thing made of fibre on a blue background. But things tell stories, and the correspondence held at the Queensland Museum offers some insights.
