A young Rosa Domaille later known as Eve Eden on the cover of Beautiful Britons No.23 (Sept 1957). Rosa looks very young on this cover posing outside in that blue polka dot bikini, which looks pained on after the photo was taken! So maybe in the actual photo she was naked? Anyone know or have the original to prove or disprove my theory?
June Palmer from the 1970’s posing in a black tasselled bikini as she kneels on the psychedelic sofa. A very teasing shot as she slowly pulls down the front on the bottoms to reveal a hint of her natural hairy pussy below!
This comes from a set of 16 35mm black and white negatives I’m editing of June posing on the sofa as she strips our of that tasselled bikini, sent over from John W. Once I’ve finished the editing I’ll post the full set that I have, but there must be more as the end of the strip seems to be missing 😉
I have over the last few years amassed a significant collection of June images from throughout her career, both glamour and normal none glamour shots. Some are on holidays, some just candid shots of June out and about. Sometimes you come across a shot of June that just makes you stop and enjoy the view and this is one of those shots! It’s not a glamour nude, just a shot of June posing for the camera in a gateway wearing a bikini, but her pose, figure, hair and even the look on her face just make it one of those photo’s that makes you stop and enjoy!
A stunning shot of June and her figure taken in the 1960’s by Arthur Howell at a guess? A big thanks to Kevin who sent this copy of the original over and who is selling the actual negative of this shot over on eBay if you are interested in owning it?
Another appearance on this blog for Mary Millington, although unlike some of my other favourite models she can legitimately be here! Mary’s career is well known and documented, including one of her most famous and successful films ‘Come Play with Me’, filmed by non other than Harrison Marks. There are other links to Mary and GHM over her career, so I thought I’d share an image of her here, not the normal stuff rather a tasteful semi dressed shot, as the other stuff can come later.
Another titbit I’ve just found out whilst looking on the Mary Millington website. The fictitious ‘Bovington Manor’ in Come Play with Me was used by Harrison Marks to shoot scenes for his film, The Nine Ages of Nakedness in 1968 and eight years later to film Come Play with Me and it’s literally two miles down the road from where I live! Now a manor hotel it’s still open for business and a little piece of GHM history I didn’t realize was on my own doorstep!
If we’re talking big tits we mustn’t forget Ann Austin’s terrific pair and I’ve found another shot of them from the ‘Floral Bikini‘ set shot at Ewhurst. This one has Ann posing behind some trellis, which slightly obscures the view of things, but you still get a good shot of her. This shot also seems to show off her holiday tan line more than the other shots.
Note: This image is from an original negative and subject to this copyright notice.
Connie Fielding dipping her toes in the sea wearing a stunning bikini that’s coming off at the shoulders! It’s actually Eve Eden or Rosa Doamille, but she went under the name Connie Fielding during this period of her career, when most of the shots of her were taken by Ed Alexander. No rude Rosa in these shots’ as they are actually quite tame compared to the many other shots we’ve seen of her under her various names!
I found two more shots of Ann Austin, one in the very short tight looking jacket that hardly covers anything let alone her chest and another wearing not a lot! Two great shots of Ann from this set and a great shot of the frontage of Ewhurst in the background in the first shot and the familiar cottage door in the second.
Another original from JAS of June, this time posing in a bikini/frilly underwear set as she bends over the back of a vintage car. I’d not seen this shot or any others from the same set, so a new one to me, but another shot to add to the ‘June & Cars‘ set. Interestingly it looks to have been taken in someone’s back garden as you can see a swimming pool in the background, but the car does look rather close to that pool!
Thanks to JAS for sharing this great June shot.
This isn’t actually a new image of June as I published this image back in July 2013, but this is a much better quality image and comes from a new source that also provided some background to the shot. Another John (I’ll call him JAS!) and another huge fan of June that has his own enviable collection of June memorabilia. JAS has acquired his collection over the years from different sources, including June herself and also had the good fortune to have met and photographed June as well.
This particular shot was taken and submitted for the 1959 Miss TV Times competition and according to JAS the entry form signed by June is glued to the back of this image. I loved this shot when I first published it, but it’s even better when you have the background to a shot. For completeness I’ve asked if JAS will scan the back so we can see the entry form, so hopefully I’ll be able to add that in due course.
A big thank you to JAS for sending this through along with the background and I look forward to seeing more of his June collection 🙂
Update: Thanks to JAS I’ve now included the hand written entry form from the back of the image below.
It’s actually Eve Eden or Connie Fielding, as that was the name she was using when this shot taken by Ed Alexander. Several shots of Eve/Connie posing on these rocks appeared in the Whitestone Publication ‘Ed Alexander Photographs English Beauties’, but this is a cracking original shot.
This was originally published over on Kevin’s pinupmemories blog
, but worthy of being shared here so thanks to him for sharing.
