Rita Landre, one of Pamela Green’s alter ego’s from Solo No.13 (1959) by Harrison Marks. Another of the Solo publications dedicated to an individual model, this one being full of Rita! This shot from P4 features Rita posing in front of the very familiar daisy/star wallpaper and wicker chair, as her dress falls down to expose her boobs along with a flash of thigh!
A complete set of photo’s of Rita Landre (Pamela Green) advertised in The Harrison Marks Glamour Guide P8. This was set No.381 featuring Rita posing at the dressing table and familiar floral wallpaper in five 5½ by 3½ glossy photo’s produced by Harrison Marks. I have no idea what the code is on the actual photo’s, but I’ve seen it or similar on many others? A cracking set of Rita and thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries I now have over 2000 photo’s to go through, including many more full sets like this from The Harrison Marks Glamour Guide and others.
A very attractive and perky unknown model posing for Harrison Marks from a restored silver gelatin print. I know it’s by Harrison Marks as the background has the very familiar daisy/star wallpaper that is seem in many of his early prints, but the model is new to me. Anyone able to identify her as I’d love to find out more about her and if any more prints exist? She doesn’t even seem to appear in the first Harrison Marks Glamour Guide, which listed all of his early photo sets, so I have no idea! I’ve added her to the growing list on my unknown models page here as well.
A shot looking up from below of June Simpson from Solo No.5 P28 (1958). June looks stunning running her hands through her platinum blonde hair, as she shows off her perfect pair! The daisy wallpaper also makes another appearance and thanks once again to Paul from Firebird Records for the copy of Solo No.5 🙂
This shot comes from Kevin and when I saw the model I recognised her, but couldn’t put a name to the face and body! On looking back through my lesser known and unknown models I believe this is another shot of Lyn Hamilton, but I may well be wrong?
If you look at the bottom shot in this post of Lyn, although at a different angle, it’s the same background, the hair style is the same, but then that hairstyle in the late 1950’s was very popular! What I can say with certainty, was that it was taken by Harrison Marks in the late 1950’s probably around 1957/58. So, is it Lyn?
With her typical 1950’s wavy blonde hair, June Simpson was a regular feature in the early publications of Harrison Marks, appearing in Kamera No.2, 3, 8, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 34 & 35, plus appearances in some of his other lesser known publications. She also had Solo No.5 devoted to her, as well as appearing on the cover and inside pages of Kamera Special No.1, along with appearances in Kamera Special No.2, No.3 and No.5.
The above image is an early shot of June by Harrison Marks from an original negative takne in the late 1950’s, and features the familiar daisy wallpaper backdrop and leopardskin rug.
