A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts laying in the hay at Sheplegh Court. Taken on a glass plate by Leslie Bainbridge in September 1959 Nancy looks fabulous as she lays in the hay basking in the sun.
Nancy Roberts kneeling on the steps of a building in the grounds of Sheplegh Court, Devon from a scan of a photographic glass plate. Another from the set of Nancy in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old and taken by Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated.
OK, more like a crawl, but I love this shot of Nancy Roberts kneeling on all fours in the grass, especially the look on her face! A very ‘You want it? Come and get it’ look as she poses like that.
Another from the set of Nancy taken in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old! Looking at the details on the box of these glass plates I now recognise the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. Who also took a set of shots I’ve been posting of Lee Southern as well.
A second stunning shot of Nancy Roberts posing on a beach with only a sun hat and beach towel for shade. It comes from a photographic glass plate and was taken in September, 1959 at the beach near Sheplegh Court, Devon. What a body on view, including a peak of her uncensored bits. I’ve also realized that this set of shots of Nancy come from the Michael Winner film ‘Some Like It Cool’ (1962) and although she is never credited in the film, Nancy appears on several posters and lobby cards advertising the film. The shots in the posters seem to be at this location and in similar positions.
I try to keep the posts and images on this site relevant to the area I’m interested in around Harrison Marks, Russell Gay and their publications, but sometimes I get sent or find shots that push those boundaries. I try and find links between the models and photographers or locations, but sometimes a shot or model doesn’t fall into those categories, but is too good not to post. I also have a number of favourite 1970’s models that don’t meet the same criteria and in the past I have posted shots of them on my other blog over on ‘Daysgonebyporn‘, but keeping several sites going takes time and effort of which I’m finding I have less and less.
Therefore I’m going to push the boundaries of what I post on this site (which is by far the most popular) and if you indulge me post a few none related posts and models. The vast majority will still be related to the main topic on the site, but you can expect the odd unrelated model or image going forward, for which I make no apology 🙂 Most of the shots will still be originals and of the quality you would expect, just more variety.
A good example is the shot above. A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts posing on a beach with only a sun hat for shade. It comes from a photographic glass plate and was taken in September, 1959 at the beach near Sheplegh Court, Devon and the accompanying notes put Nancy at 20 years old in the shot. What a body and what a smile and thankfully I have several others of Nancy at the beach to share along with this 🙂
Enjoy the very enjoyable diversion and let me know what you think about expanding the scope of the site a little?
