Lee Southern (Sothern) cooling off in the sea on the cover of Health & Efficiency (June 1967). Nothing risqué about this cover, but Lee looks sexy and cool at the same time in her blue bikini as she takes a splash in the sea. Taken at a beach close to Sheplegh Court in Devon, which was a popular haunt of editor Leslie Bainbridge.
Lee Southern (Sothern) sat posing in a very dodgy old wheelbarrow in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1963. From a set of Lee in and around the grounds of Sheplegh and taken by Leslie Bainbridge on a glass photographic plate.
Lee Sothern (Southern) or Grace Jackson wearing just a sunhat as she poses with a piece of straw in the grounds of Sheplegh Court. Scanned from a glass photographic plate and taken in 1960 when she was apparently 24!
A small but perfect set of shots of Gloria Lomax taken by Terry Sparks on a beach down in Devon in the summer of 1966. Terry sent this set of scans copied from his collection on SVHS tape, hence the lower size and quality and didn’t think they would be worth sharing! I disagree as it’s Gloria Lomax and stuff we’ve never seen before from Terry, so always worth seeing regardless of size.
I love the first close-up shot of Gloria, with the shadows across her face and the water drops across her small pert tits, a brilliant shot and I do wish I had a better copy of that one to enjoy, but I can’t complain. Thanks to Terry as always for a glimpse into his world back then.

Three more silver gelatin prints of Lee Sothern (Southern) from photographic glass plates. These were again taken poolside at Sheplegh Court down in South Devon in the 1960’s, although in this shoot the pool seems to be empty in these, so maybe a later date than the shot I posted here?
Three great poses by Lee and after a bit of detective work I’ve identified the photographer as Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustated.
