Lee Sothern – At One With Nature (1963)

A silver gelatin print from a glass photographic plate of Lee Sothern (Grace Jackson) taken poolside at Sheplegh Court, South Devon in 1963 . Research has shown that Sheplegh Court was another naturist resort based around a large manor house and similar to that of Spielplatz Naturist Club, but down in the warmer climates of Devon and was running up until the late 1980’s.

A wonderful shot of Lee with long hair (extensions?) and her tanned body, who was 27 years old at the time this was taken. Unknown photographer, but I’ve seen similar shots of Lee like this that have appeared in H&E magazine, which would make sense with the location. I have several others of Lee at Sheplegh Court, as well as others of her at Spielplatz, so she was obviously doing the rounds at the naturist clubs in the early 1960’s. Also another variation of her name spelling as well, as they did back then 🙂

June Palmer – Down on The Thames Embankment! (Original)

There’s nothing like a day trip out in your best coat and scarf to visit the sights of London! June looking extremely elegant as she poses down on the Thames embankment in white jacket and scarf on 11th August 1963. Sometimes the simplest of images of June are equally as good as the glamour shots and this is one such shot.

 

I didn’t realize, but I have two other shots of June in this outfit as well as this one 🙂

Jackie Parker – Just Pigtails! (1963)

I found another shot of Jackie Parker in Kamera, this time in Kamera No.55 (1963), but from the same shoot as the others that appear in Kamera No.40.  A familiar background used for other shoots such as Pamela Green, but great to see Jackie showing off her great assets (and pigtails) in Kamera.

Chin Up Jayne! (1963)

Jayne Tracey coming down the staircase of Ewhurst Manor from Kamera No.51 (1963). I’m not sure if it’s the angle of the shot from below, but it looks like Jayne is either holding her chin up or maybe something caught her eye and is looking back up the stairs.

Elaine Desmond Uncensored & Retouched (1963)

I always find it fascinating when I come across an image of a model published in Kamera and have a copy of the original to compare it with.  The above two shots are a good example of Elaine Desmond published in Kamera No.51 (1963).  
The first shot is the original uncensored shot of Elaine showing us everything, including her smooth fully shaven mons pubis area. The second is the same shot, but published in Kamera after the retoucher has got hold of it to get it past the censors! If we ignore the quality difference between the two shots I still know which one I prefer. Although back when this was published, something was better than nothing in terms of titillation! Two great shots of Elaine which ever version you prefer.

June In Suburbia, More Front Room Frolics! (Original)

Another original shot from the John archives of June in suburbia. Same location as this shot, but different attire or lack of it! You can’t disagree though that June like this would be a very warming addition to any front room! Cracking furniture and very 1960’s but I do wonder about the curtains and what colour they were? I imagine them to be some psychedelic blue or orange for some reason.
