Within 40 feet of where these photographs were taken on Riverside Drive, Marinette, WI, is a plaque with a bust of Marie Antoinette born 1784. Daughter of Menominee Chief Wauba-Shish, she welcomed both Indians and whites to her trading post and home, integrating the whole town. The locals called her Queen Marinette for whom the town was named after.
