I'm sorry, I didn't explain my self very clearly.
I think that many people have seen either this image or one of the marabou stork images as referenced by Dr Shuker when much younger, later they have come across references to thunderbird pictures, this prompts the little grey cells to go rifling through the mental archives and up comes a conflation of the seen image with what is expected (ie barn, people in old american dress) they say to themselves, "yes I've seen that" and Bingo!
It is a reconstruction of Argentavis magnificens.
Hardly implausible, sure.
Although I still would not 100% discount that such a photo existed. One of my main concerns about modern digital publishing is that unless a physical copy of *any* document survives some day it will disappear for good.
