Link's Color photo

Link made a famous photo called "highballing the hotshot" or something like
that. It was ostensibly made at Boaz, and shows Asst. TM Bill Tanner (I
believe) highballing doubleheaded As on the "House Car Run". They'd left
the A-tank off the lead A so both of them could be in the picture.

Trouble is, the shanty at Boaz was not next to the main line and had slight
differences from the one in the photo.

Anybody know where that photo was actually made?
