Another shot of Bobby Sparrow taken by Terry Sparks at Pegwell Bay, Kent in 1972. This shot comes from a set of original contact sheets by Terry and distributed to Lilo Korenjack who was his agent in Baden-Baden, Germany back in the 70’s. I fortunately came across these and many other contact sets (over 700 contact sheets scanned so far!) by accident via Lilo’s niece and now they are part of my collection.
A great shot of Bobby perched atop that piece of wood on the beach and a great smile too 🙂
Nancy Robard taken by Terry Sparks in March 1972 and another from my collection of 10 contact sheets featuring 120 images of Nancy. To say Nancy had a good covering down below would be an understatement, as she’s one of those few natural models that has a thick abundant pussy and just doesn’t stop until it reaches her navel, similar to the likes of Clyda Rosen.
Also another model that decided to disguise herself with a wig and I couldn’t find anything online under the name Nancy Robard, so maybe that’s her real name and she modelled under a different moniker! As you moved into the 70’s tastes sure changed as censorship laws relaxed and more could be shown, things certainly got hairier 🙂
Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy scanning and editing my growing collection of new models taken by Terry Sparks and Cherry is one of those models! When I say new I mean new to me, not new work! Scanned from a set of 10 contact sheets with 120 different images I love this shot of Cherry trying to cover her modesty and failing as she poses in front of a mirror. A stunning model that looks familiar to me for some reason, but a fabulous slender figure on show and as with most glamour models from the early 70’s onwards showing off a very full thick bush indeed!
Terry certainly had an eye for capturing his models in the best light, but I’m not so sure about the names he gave them sometimes, as I’m assuming Cherry Orchard wasn’t her real name? Saying that Cherry Orchard has a certain ring to it and probably works well for this model. I’ve been adding more new models to the page of Terry’s models and now have over 30 listed with more to come. Some are familiar like Trudi Ayre (Angela Duncan), Sonia Mitchell (Terry Graham) or even Vicky Ashley, but there are many new faces and bodies I’ve never seen before and will be posting more over the coming weeks.
Again these are a different era and type of image to the early Harrison Marks and Russell Gay images you would normally find here, but a little bit of diversity never hurts. Especially as most of the stuff I’m posting now is original never seen before stuff that I’ve come across on my travels and worth sharing. As always a big thank you to Terry for the dates and names of the new models 🙂
Fanni Leigh (Polly Eltes) on the cover of Skirt No.25 with the photo taken by Terry Sparks. I always like it when I come across a published image either on the cover or within the pages of a vintage magazine that I also have in my original collection and this falls into that category. I recently published a similar black and white version of Franni by Terry here, then what do I find on my travels but a magazine cover featuring one of the shots, but in colour. Unfortunately I don’t have any colour shots from this set of Franni, but at least I now know the colour of her top!
It’s always quite satisfying when you see a shot like above and can identify the model, photographer and date it was taken. The original shots were taken in August of 1972, so one assumes this was published later 72 or 73? Unfortunately I only found the cover, so no idea if Franni went on to reveal more on the inside pages!
Another shot by Terry Sparks from my collection of his contact sheets and this time featuring Franni Leigh, who has already appeared on this site several times before here. This comes from a set of photos taken by Terry in August 1972 and the two previous colour shots on the bed are from this same set. Compared to my other posts and other shots I have seen this is very tame, but at the same time a very good shot of her, with you being able to see her small pert tits through that tight top.
As already explained Franni wasn’t her real name and beneath that wig she was actually fashion model Polly Eltes, who worked for the likes of David Bailey and others, with this being one of her few full nude modelling assignments. She also had brief careers as a British actress and singer, but today she has come full circle and has become a successful photographer behind the camera working for interiors and lifestyle magazines. Thanks as always to Terry for the fabulous insights into his time behind the camera with these models.
It’s also my last post before my week away, so there will be no further updates until I return. Thank you to everyone for the comments and emails showing support to the site after my moan about my images being used elsewhere as it’s really appreciated. I’ll take the time away to decide what to do next, but I’m sure I’ll be back after my break and will continue posting in some format, as it would be a shame to hide away all the 1000’s of images I now have in my archive because of a few selfish people!
Enjoy Franni and see you all soon 🙂
