How can I get a copy of this photo of Ronnie’s Drive In?

The proper spelling of the venue includes an apostrophe…it should be Ronnie’s. Fred Wehrenberg named the drive-in after his grandson, Ronald Krueger.

Opened: July 15, 1948.
Last night of operation: September 12, 1982.
Screen tower pulled down August 2nd, 1983 with a shopping center soon to be built on the land. By this time, Ronnie had grown up and was president of Wehrenberg Theatres. He said at the occasion: “My first job working in the theatre business was here at Ronnie’s, running the minature train.”

Another source has this drive-in located in Sappington, which is zip code 63126. As that source also mentions a 1948 opening, my hunch is that this drive-in was on some land contiguous with the two cities.
