Barbara Peckinpaugh by Edmund Leja (Original)

The elegant Barbara Peckinpaugh taken by US photographer Edmund Leja in 1980 from a set of original contact sheets. Barbara only worked as a model for a short period of time from 1980 until 1986 under various names and seems to have mostly done glamour or softcore work apart from two hardcore movies. Sadly no longer with us, as It’s reported that after her short career in modelling she committed suicide. In nearly all her photo’s she’s blonde, but this shot was at the beginning of her short career, so obviously her natural colour.

Edmund Leja (1919-2002) was based in West Hollywood at the heart of the early Southern California nude photography industry. He was also friends with Andre de Dienes and both shared several model contacts including Diane Webber, Collette Berne (Playboy cover model, July 1960), as well as Sue Snow and Tammy Saunders. Leja discovered and photographed three Playmates for Playboy magazine Teddi Smith, Miss July 1960, Donna Michelle, Miss December 1963 (and 1964’s Playmate of the Year), and Lori Winston, Miss June 1964.
 
Edmund Leja photographed over 200 models between the 1940s and the early 1980s and until I came across these shots of Barbara I assumed he only shot glamour shots similar to those published in Playboy. Apparently not as there are several shots of Barbara showing off a lot more (as members can see), but at least the collars and cuffs match showing she was a natural brunette 🙂
 

Sylvia McFarland – Not Your Usual View! (Original)

Another original shot of Sylvia Luck (McFarland) from my collection of over 350 images of her, but this time a slightly different view! We are normally used to seeing the front views of Sylvia and her massive chest and obvious other delights, but this is one of the few shots I have of her from behind! It’s always good to get a different perspective of models and you certainly do with this shot and despite Sylvia’s obvious assets doesn’t she have a small bum? I’m not sure if it’s due to her small waist and bum, or the fact that she was very hairy down below, but in this shot she seems to have a very large and prominent pubic mound on show from behind or maybe it’s just the position 😉 Whatever the reason it’s certainly not your usual view of Sylvia McFarland!

Colleen by Terry Sparks (1973)

Time for another new model from the Terry Sparks archive in the form of Colleen White. Taken by Terry in April of 1973 it shows off the fine figure of Colleen sat draped in a long beaded necklace. Another model that favoured a wig when modelling, but it doesn’t really detract from the rest of her face and superb figure. Also another model that prefered the very natural unkempt look down below with a full thick pussy highlighted by the white tan line caused by her bikini bottom, although it looks like it just about covered that big bush 😉

La Donna Cole – Goddess In White! (Original)

The stunning La Donna Cole posing on the edge of a bed in white by Howard Roark. This is a fantastic set of photos of Donna in long white gloves, basque and stockings and that’s before we even get to those massive tits! La Donna is your typical curvy, very big busted model from the 1970’s that had lots on offer in every department, including down below, which she shows off to the full in other shots. In fact she seems to open up to the camera in more than one way more than other models that posed for Howard Roark, but more of that in later posts.

I love the lighting in this shot as it filters through her hair and bounces off those big pendulous tits. Delicious shot!

Dawn & Gloria – A Real Dynamic Duo! (Original)

I love it when I come across a set of photos in my collection and realize they feature two of my favourite 1960’s models! I’ve been working through a huge collection of contact sheets and original prints I’ve bought over the last few months and there sitting amongst them was a set of shots of Dawn Grayson and Gloria Lomax together. How did I miss that! Anyway it’s a set of 12 shots of Gloria and Dawn posing on a black set in various poses with a plant stand and flowers between them. You can just see it behind them in this shot. Both girls are in all shots and look fabulous as they strike different poses.

As I’ve mentioned before Gloria and Dawn were friends and traveled together for assignments. I’ve published a few of them working together before here, but it’s a nice surprise to find I have an original set of them hiding in my collection. No idea if these ended up being published or who took the shots, but what a dynamic duo 🙂

Sonia Ayala – Buxom & Bountiful (Original)

A great shot of Sonia Ayala from the 1970’s, although I’m not sure if her photos were ever published under that name as I can’t find anything? I have a set of contact sheets with that name on the back, but that may be her real name or more likely made up? Plus no name of who took the photos either so I can’t even hazard a guess as to where to look! 

Still it’s beautiful shot of a more naturally buxom and curvy young model with plenty on offer in all departments as you can see! You can’t say I don’t offer variety on this site 🙂

Wendy Smith – A Warmer Outlook (Original)

Wendy Smith by Howard Roark from the 1970’s and definitely a view to raise the temperature. Wendy is a firm favourite of mine and just looking at this view raises things this end, but if all else failed you could always nestle between those big beauties of hers and keep warm that way 🙂

Diba Tomasin – Pigtails & Chains (1973)

Diba Tomasin taken by Terry Sparks in November 1973 from a set of his contact sheets I own. A great set and shot of this perky little model by Terry and I love the use of the chains wrapped around her slender body highlighting those small perky tits and dark natural pussy. The pigtails are a nice touch as well and add to the overall cheeky feel to the shot.

I’ve now updated the Terry Sparks model page with 52 of the models that posed for him in the past, with even more to come under his Pseudonym of Paul Pantha, so that should keep me busy 😉
