That was probably the only time that particular  incarnation was on 
display. Looks like it was based on Marsh's  reconstruction.
Of special interest to me was the photo of  the great sculptor/taxidermist, 
Louis Paul Jonas, with his model of a baby Uncle  Beasley made for a 
television version of "The Enormous  Egg".

A great source for old dinosaur mount photos is Bill Ashworth's "Paper  
Dinosaurs" There is a nice little book version available  also.
