Description: Photograph of a museum display depicting the first queen of Port Arthur, Texas, 1923. A mannequin wearing a tiara and ornate dress stands between a display case to the left and a document display case and chair to the right. Small signs amid the mannequin's feet note the dressmaker, Ida Griffin, and the first queen of Port Arthur, Mary Donaldson. Near the bottom of the photo is a photo of the original queen wearing the dress. To the far right is a sign urging pioneer families to display at least one item from the case.
