The beautiful buxom Ann Austin posing in the hay by Harrison Marks. This comes from a restored 35mm colour Pamar slide sent over by Kevin and I believe although there is hay/straw in the shot this was taken on the Loft set? Never seen a copy of this slide before and it’s always a pleasure to see a bit of Ann! I believe although there is hay/straw in the shot this was taken on the Loft set?
Ann Austin posing on the loft set by Harrison Marks, with the Parisian/Alley set seen in the background. Shots similar to this of Ann posing on the loft set with the gramophone appeared in Kamera No.22 (1960), along with the cover of Avec Plaisir No.5 and several Pamar slides.
There is no doubting that it’s Ann Austin on the cover of this US magazine Glamour Parade (February 1959), but interesting that the magazine has her named as Ellie Manning on the cover.
Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records for the cover and additional info that unfortunately the only other image inside the magazine is the same shot in black & white. No indication of the fact that she’s a British model, in fact it suggests she’s from New York! But we all know how the magazines and photographer’s back then liked to embellish on the truth around model names and where they came from 🙂
A great clear colour shot of Ann in white lace panties and negligee with the negligee open but strategically placed to cover her ample bosom enough to get her on the cover!
