Grant, I'm cc:ing this to the VRTPALEO list to increase possible hits.

Yes, know exactly the photo to which you refer. It is AMNH 5027. But I can't 
find a copy of it either, so if any can point us to it
that would be great.

I *think* it was redrawn for one of the classic mid-century kid's dinosaur 
books (Big Golden Book or the like).
