A very happy Margaret Nolan showing off her big smile and midnight shadow in front of the fire place! Taken by Harrison Marks and reprinted in Magnificent Models No.1 this shot of Margaret must have still been easier to retouch then one of the fuller bush models
After my post last week of an original photo of bobby Sparrow on the beach at Pegwell bay, Terry has now sent through several more shots of her. They including this shot of Bobby without her wig and Terry remembers that he worked with her several times during 1971 and 1972, mostly shooting the stockings and suspender belt style photo for the American market. She usually wore the wig and the only picture of her without one is above, but it does match the to a similar one published in Oui.
Terry also recounts that she was a very lively girl and good fun to have a laugh with – I remember one occasion when she proudly showed me her pubic area trimmed into a heart shape. I think her current boyfriend was a hairdresser.
I don’t know what happened to her after about 1973 as we lost touch, but I did see a rather distressing article in a national newspaper sometime in the mid 1990’s. It concerned an ex-glamour model called Roberta something who had developed MS and was terminally ill. There was a picture of a very sick lady laying in bed and I just could not make up my mind if it was her or not. I do remember that her real name was Roberta, so it may have been her or it may have been someone totally different.
Thanks to Terry for the story and hopefully the last part isn’t true and it wasn’t Bobby, but unfortunately these things do happen. Thanks also to Terry for more shots of Bobby at Pegwell bay and that heart shaped bush!
Another cracking shot of June by Stefan Glass posing in the living room, this time reclining on a sofa in a stunning little sheer nightie that leaves little to the imagination! I have 4 shots of June reclining on this sofa either with this nightie on or nude, but one thing she never forgets in any of them, her cigarette! I forget how acceptable smoking was back then even in publications, but it still looks odd now.

A colour study of Anita Ekberg (not 100% sure?) from my copy of Figure Quarterly Vol.15 (1956), which also features her on the back and front cover in colour as well as several black and white shots inside. I just saw that she passed away today at the age of 83, so thought I’d post this fantastic nude shot of her. R.I.P.
