Vera Day adorning the cover of Spick No.10 (Sept 1954) in a very nice red and black bikini. The sub title says ‘Starlet Moving Up’ and she obviously hit her prime in 1962 when she posed for Harrison Marks nude! Thanks to Paul from Firebird London for this great copy.
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!
