Dawn Grayson from a set of 6 restored original 35mm colour slides posing topless in a pair of blue denim jeans from Firebird Records. As you can see the set features Dawn posing in the studio with sheer netting as a background posing topless in jeans but eventually stripping off and posing in various positions nude. I have at least 3 more slides available from this set with those I’ve published so far here. I also have another set of 6 slides of Dawn on the same set, but totally nude 🙂
I’d just like to wish all followers and members of the site a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year! I’d also like to thank all of the friends and supporters of the site that have provided feedback and images over the past year. It’s always appreciated and without your continued support the site wouldn’t be half as good as it is. I’m going away over the Christmas period, so things will slow down here, but I hope you all have a good break and I’ll see you all back here for another year of vintage goodies in 2017.
The above Christmas scene is obviously the glorious Dawn Grayson posing on Santa’s sleigh amongst the furs, but still showing off that fabulous figure. The original shot appeared in the Kamera Winter Special P10 and P11 (1966), but this is from the original negative in my collection. We also have Santa (Harrison Marks) and a snowman in the scene, but neither take away the limelight from Dawn and I wish Santa would bring me one of those on his sleigh this year!
A superb black and white image of Dawn Grayson posing on a white wrought iron bench on the lawn at Ewhurst Manor from the original negative. Taken by Harrison Marks in the early 1960’s this shot along with several others appeared in Solo No.43 (1964) dedicated to Dawn. This particular pouting shot appeared on page 41 and the close up really shows off her smouldering pouty look as she stares directly at the camera. There are also shots of Dawn and GHM himself posing on this bench, along with Dawn posing alongside another model named as Lisa Hamilton, of which I have several of the negatives as well.
One advantage of having the original negative is you can scan in much closer to see the details, that the print in the original publication doesn’t afford you. The original medium format negative, which is 6cm by 6cm square also allows you to see much more of Ewhurst, including the lawn, gardens and front entrance than these cropped version show, but who wants to see the background when you have a nude Dawn Grayson to look at!
A flash of thigh from Dawn Grayson as she reveals her fancy stockings and slip below her dress! Taken around 1966, similar shots to this one appeared in Spick No.147 (February 1966) but I’m not sure if this actual shot was published? I must admit that in my extensive Dawn collection the biggest gap I have of her is in her Spick & Span, Beautiful Britons shots and appearances.
I’d love to get hold of good quality copies of her Toco appearances or the original images and in particular a set of her posing in the bath in striped top and stockings. It’s on the top of my want list and isn’t even of Dawn nude 🙂
Dawn Grayson and her deliciously perky pair from the original negative of the image that originally appeared in Kamera No.70 P12 (1966). The image published was cropped much closer than this version and you can see that version here, but I much prefer my version. Not only is the clarity as sharp as it could be, but you get to see more of Dawn, plus a few more of GHM’s prints on the wall.
The original medium format negative shows slightly more of the prints above Dawn’s head, so you can guess who the models are. The left hand one is June Palmer on the lawn at Ewhurst and the other being Pamela Green as Rita Landre on the beach. I know this is a duplication of an image of Dawn already posted, but worth a revisit as it’s from the negative itself and so much clearer, plus it’s Dawn and you can’t have enough of her!
Dawn Grayson on the cover of Bazaar No.29 from the late 1960’s and a rare uncensored version of the cover. Bazaar was a 32 page Danish publication featuring uncensored images of European models, including some Harrison Marks models such as June Palmer and others. The Bizarre thing about Bazaar is that the GHM models have had thick pubic hair airbrushed into the shots, but the European models seem to be naturally hairy shots.
Also the only clean shaven model in the whole magazine is Dawn on the cover and unfortunately that is the only appearance Dawn makes and the only colour image, but at least I have a copy!
A 10 by 8 print of Dawn Grayson in all her nude glory, giving us an uncensored view down below! I think this is actually one of the few shots I’ve seen of Dawn unshaven down below, although I’d hardly say it was a full on bush. Nearly all her early shots including those taken by Harrison Marks show Dawn with a clean and smooth look, so some hair is a rarity! Nice rug too, which could have led to all sorts of other bush/rug comments, but I’ll refrain 🙂
A photo from my own collection of Dawn Grayson images that I’ve collected over the years. This must go down as one of my favourites of Dawn with her clothes on, well some clothes anyway! This was scanned from a medium format colour negative (120 film). Dawn is wearing her familiar blue and white bikini that she wears in many other shots, so maybe it was one of her own rather than provided by the photographer? I also love the use of the lighting to her left highlighting her red hair and the look she is giving the camera, simple but effective.

Dawn Grayson on the cover of Beautiful Britons No.122 published by Toco. I’m really not quite sure why they tended to enhance the images on the covers of some editions like this, where it seems the image has been given a painted cartoon effect? On this version they seem to have enhanced the blue of Dawn’s eyes and made her red hair look almost grey! Not really complaining, after all it’s still Dawn 🙂
A second cheeky little shot of Dawn Grayson posing in a very short sheer pink negligee that leaves little to the imagination! Taken outdoors at the same location as this original shot it comes from a scan of an original 35mm Kodak slide from my own Dawn collection and is the last of two shots I have from this set.
