June & The Bookcase (Original)

This shot sent through by John looks like it was taken at the same time as the ‘June The Bookworm‘ set, but this one has June wearing a different colour baby doll and panties than the others. We still have the bookcase and the Encyclopedia Britannica’s in the background, along with an old record collection and a coffee pot! Great to see one of these shots in colour, even if after tweaking it’s still slightly pink!

June Palmer – Ewhurst Escapades! (Original)

The first shot from a set of great images of June in the grounds and gardens of Ewhurst Manor. This ‘Ewhurst Escapades’ set has June posing fully dressed (nearly!) as above in negligee and underwear, then in black underwear and finally nude on the lawn at Ewhurst, by the pond and deep in undergrowth somewhere! Great set of June with long hair from the early 1960’s and I’m tempted to say by Harrison Marks, but not entirely sure, maybe John can shed some light?

June The Bookworm, Part 2

The second shot from a set of 11 images of June posing in a black negligee with a bookshelf and set of Encyclopedia Britannica’s in the background, not that the Encyclopedia’s are the main focus of interest here!  June looks as glorious as ever and in her prime in this set, with more shots coming shortly.

June Palmer – Long Black Negligee Studio Pose (Original)

The start of another small set of images of June from John, this time posing in a familiar long black negligee. This time she’s posing in a studio setting with a nice red background and very 1960’s red and white chair!

Another June by Bob Robson (Original)

Another shot of June by Bob Robson from the late 1950’s restored from a purchased original negative. Unfortunately this was as good as I could restore the colours, as again the actual negative was faded and had a very bad magenta hue to it, so not a bad effort! Still a little on the magenta side and the highlights are blown out on her face and shoulders, but still a great shot of a younger June. A black and white conversion below as a comparison.

A Very Woolly Story (Original)

A very odd title for this post I know, but bare with me (pun intended!) After publishing this post  mentioning the fabled sheepskin rugs that appear in many shots from Strobe, itsgarden contacted me to give me this great little story about the said rugs.

‘As to the sheepskins, as you can imagine floor boards can be pretty hard to sit on/lie on for a couple of hours whilst posing for photographs. So when I first met June at ScotLee Studios the only complaint she ever had been the hardness of floor boards and the marks on her body they left. So being a country boy, I suggested she used sheepskin rugs to make the floor softer and to prevent marks on her from pressure points. I duly supplied 6 full-sized sheepskins to Brian Scott at Scotlee and another 6 to Arthur when I started to use Strobe Studios. She was forever grateful.’

So, there we have it, the origins of the fabled sheepskin rugs and where they came from and why they appear in so many shots! Well done Itsgardin as you are quite right, June didn’t need her delicate pressure points up against those hard floorboards, that just wouldn’t have done and thanks for the great story 🙂

Oh and the above shot of Itsgardin was used because there was some rug in the background and I love the sheer nightie showing her great tits and it was taken at the Scotlee studio’s in 1979

June Back in Black -1987 (Original)

Another from Itsgardin’s own private collection of June images shot between 1975 and 1987. This one is from 1987 and shot by Itsgardin at the home of Arthur Howell, with June looking coy as she lifts up her short black negligee to reveal her body below!

June Palmer – Another View Through The Bay Window (Original)

The 4th shot from the ‘Bay Window‘ set of June stood on a windowsill at Ewhurst Manor, this time facing away giving us a rear view of herself and that glorious figure and bum! Anyone walking past the front of the house would have been presented with an equally enthralling front view of June as well!
