Elaine Desmond – A Saucy Seaweed View (1964)

Elaine Desmond posing on some rocks on Bedruthan beach in nothing more than her pigtails. This shot appears in Kamera Special No.4 (1964) with Elaine looking rather coy as she balances precariously on that seaweed cover rock!

Mayfair Makes a Film!

An interesting article from the pages of Mayfair Vol.2 No.1 (January 1964) about several well known models making a film for Mayfair. The models in question were Dawn Grayson, Geraldine (Gerry) Brown, Lee Southern, Diane (McNeil) Grant and Pauline Dickenson. All of which apart from Pauline are well known on this blog, especially my favourite in the pink tights, Dawn Grayson.

Now I’m not sure if a film was really made or this was just a set up for the article, but I do know Mayfair did make several super 8mm films later on featuring Syliva Bayo, Mandy Kuypers and Penny Mallett. So maybe they did make the film, but I’m sure I wouldn’t have missed such a film featuring Dawn and friends? Anyone know if it really exists?

Dawn Grayson – From Rags to Riches! (Original)

A beautifully lit shot of Dawn Grayson by Harrison Marks as she poses for him on the Cinderella set in 1964. The published version of this shot appeared in Solo No.43 P22 (1964), but was a slightly tighter crop than my version, but I prefer this one. Dawn’s face and small perky tits are perfectly highlighted by the lighting come from the right, as she poses with her hands under her chin and with her arms in mid air. Although wearing the rags of Cinderella, she definitely looks like a Princess to me!

Christina by Harrison Marks (Original)

The model known only as Christina from a scan of an original negative by Harrison Marks. Very little is known about Christina, other than there were just four photographs of Christina published, two in Kamera No.51 and two from the same shoot in No.61, plus one GHM glamour Film, No.41: ‘Christina’ (1964). All seem to have been taken at GHM’s flat with half inside (No.51) and half outside on the balcony (No.61). To date I have 3 negatives of Christina all on the balcony, one published in No.61, but the other two including this one as far as I know were never published.

As always I’m sure she posed for more than these few shots for Harrison Marks, so must have gone under another name?

Wendy Luton – Doll of the Month (1964)


Wendy Luton as ‘Doll of the Month’ for Modern Man magazine (December 1964). All photo’s were taken by popular UK photographer Ed Alexander who used Wendy on many occasions as a model and who can blame him! The colour photo is stunning, although it does look a little enhanced and painted, but still no mistaking Wendy’s slender frame and pert pair!
