In the end, setting lbl["image"] = "" worked (as opposed to None, which 
raises a TclError with the message that pyimage2 or whatever number of 
pictures had been put in so far didn't exist).  This is a surprisingly 
underdocumented fact, however.  Googling various combinations of 
Tkinter, label, image, and remove, failed to yield a fruitful result 
until the 4th or 5th page of the 5th or so combination.

In any case, thanks for your time.
