Steamboats A -Comin'!

April 21, 1952, Appleton Post-Crescent
Reading this article, I found it fascinating how many boats that had plied their trade along Lakes Winnebago and Little Lake Butte des Morts ended up in service along the Mississippi River. Equally surprising was how these boats found new life, broken down to create more manageable craft along narrow waters, like the "Menasha" which was just too big for its own good.
