Vera Day – Backstage in Black (Original)

A fabulously sexy shot of Vera Day posing backstage in black corset, panties and stockings by Harrison Marks. A number of shots from this shoot appeared in the hardback book ‘Vera’ but this shot from an original negative of Vera never actually made it into the book, I wonder why? A simply stunning and very sexy shot of Vera without really revealing anything 🙂

Backstage with Monique (Original)

Monique Devereux posing backstage by Harrison Marks in some very fancy knickers! I keep saying it, but I’ll say it again, why does it always look like she’s sucking her tummy in, in many of the shots I’ve seen! You can even seen her rib cage in this shot, which looks slightly odd! Looking back at all the shots of her I’ve posted, her tummy is always sucked in and the ribs are showing, so maybe I’m doing her a dis-service and that was her normal figure?

Another Day, Another Corset! (1962)

Two stunning shots of Vera Day from the book 1962 book ‘Vera’ by Harrison Marks. What’s not to like about these two shots of Vera in striking corset, matching black panties and stockings posing on the backstage set. I love the coloured shot of her by the ladder, but there’s something quite domineering about the second one with the way she’s stood, hands on hips! I know if I was confronted by her looking like that I’d do as I’m told 🙂

June Palmer – Kamera No.61 Cover (1964)

Another great image of June by Harrison Marks on the backstage set on the cover of Kamera No.61 (1964) and one that I also have a negative of the same shot (below). The backstage shoot of June posing with the long black negligee is a very well published and known set that crops up regularly and this shot is one of those well known images. The photo used for the Kamera cover is a wider and much more vibrant shot than the one from the negative, but obviously the negative shot is clearer and the colours restored, so more natural. Great to see both together with the differences for comparison.  The negative was duplicated (Internegative) from an original for selling as part of the June Palmer slide set No.60, so probably the reason it’s cropped more than the cover shot and original.  As an aside, most of the June 35mm negatives you see being sold individually or in sets are probably duplicates of the original negative.

Backstage Beauties – Maria Hale & Jean Spaul (1959)

Another double delight of beauties, this time Jean Spaul (Sporle) and Maria Hale from the 1959 special Kamera Backstage. Both Jean and Maria appear through-out this special, but more-so Maria both as herself (short dark hair) and predominately as Madeleine Mado (long blonde wig).

Dawn Grayson as Liza Martelle (Original)

Dawn Grayson by Harrison Marks on the ‘Backstage set’ at Lily Place Studio’s wearing long blonde wig as ‘Liza Martelle’ in a pink underwear set. I love this shot of Dawn, although I do think she looks a little slutty in this set with those panties pulled up between her cheeks! This is an original scan of a negative from Kevin and again it’s good to see a full version of the negative against the version printed in the magazine here

June Palmer – Backstage Bling! (Original)

The second backstage shot of June from the set of 8 original Harrison Marks glamour slides (Set No.60), which I recently purchased. The slides themselves are excellent quality with very few blemishes on them, but unfortunately over time they have gained a magenta tinge to them. I love the pose from June in this one with her arm across her forehead and the bling on her panties and high heels, giving her a look and feel of a stripper backstage, which I assume was the idea.

Marie Provost – The Best of Kamera Vol.2 Cover

One of the few missing covers from my collection of Kamera magazine covers and thanks to Yak from the Official Pamela Green site for providing the scan. The cover features Marie Provost or as I’ve seen her named somewhere else recently Tina Sherwood, but not been able to verify that name yet! And would you believe it but shortly after getting a copy of the cover a copy of the actual magazine appears on eBay, typical!

June Palmer – Backstage Beauty (Original)

I’ve published other shots of June posing for Harrison Marks on the backstage set, but this is the first real quality colour shot. This shot is one of two colour shots from backstage and comes from a set of 8 original Harrison Marks glamour slides (Set No.60), which I recently won over on eBay. The slides themselves are excellent quality with very few blemishes on them, but unfortunately over time they have gained a magenta tinge to them. Thankfully the colour correction software on my scanner managed to compensate for this and restored the colours. This is also the same (cropped) shot of June that appears on the cover of Kamera No.61, so puts the shot at around 1964.

I love this new set of slides of June and will publish all 8 once I’ve scanned and restored them. I’m also really please with how this shot has restored and comes out 🙂

June Behind The Scenes

Another couple of beautifully posed shots of June Palmer by Harrison Marks on the ‘Backstage’ set. The top shot is a great shot of June wearing that skimpy little bikini bottom, just covering her modesty, which in other shots is missing to expose more of June.
