Glamour Parade Cover – Ellie or Ann? (1959)

There is no doubting that it’s Ann Austin on the cover of this US magazine Glamour Parade (February 1959), but interesting that the magazine has her named as Ellie Manning on the cover.

Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records for the cover and additional info that unfortunately the only other image inside the magazine is the same shot in black & white. No indication of the fact that she’s a British model, in fact it suggests she’s from New York! But we all know how the magazines and photographer’s back then liked to embellish on the truth around model names and where they came from 🙂

A great clear colour shot of Ann in white lace panties and negligee with the negligee open but strategically placed to cover her ample bosom enough to get her on the cover!

Debbie Magee – Highlights From the 80’s (Original)

Another original image of 1980’s UK model, Debbie Magee. This shot comes from a set of 35mm colour negatives taken in 1988 and features Debbie in black and white striped top, panties and black stockings, with some of the other shots again showing off more of Debbie’s body than just her perfect tits! A very typical hairstyle of the 80’s as well with blonde highlights dotted throughout her perm!

A Bit of Magic From Debbie Magee! (1988)

A blast from my past with an original image of 1980’s UK model, Debbie Magee. This shot comes from a set of 35mm colour negatives taken in the studio of D.E.Brittain-Catlin of Norwich in 1988 and features Debbie in sheer red top, red gloves and stockings, with some of the other shots showing off more of Debbie’s body than just her perfect tits!

Debbie appeared in the typical men’s magazines of the 1980’s and 90’s such as Parade, Fiesta, Knave and Escort. She was a favourite during that time because she was a spitting image of a girlfriend of mine at the time, as they both had similar hair and bodies. Because of this and the quality of the image it was too good not to share!

 

Light & Shade Magazine Covers (1950’s)

A set of covers from the publication ‘Light & Shade’ from the late 1950’s. I have a set of 15 covers from No.1 to No.15, but have no idea if that is a full set? These were produced by Russell Gay and published by Dalrow Publication Ltd. Pennine Publications, Bolton. A very similar set of magazines in the same style, including Tr-coloured covers was published under the title ‘Line & Form’, but by Eva Grant (I also have a set of these to edit and post).

I love the covers of this magazine especially the use of one primary colour per cover. and I think my favourites are No.8, No.9 (June Simpson) and No.12. Thanks must go to Paul from Firebird Records for all of these magazines and covers, a superb collection!

Brenda Graham – Housework in Hot Pants!


Brenda Graham from Sprite No.3 making a cuppa and doing a spot of housework in a very nice pair of tight white shorts and not a lot else! I’m not sure health and safety would be happy about her doing the ironing topless, but it sure looks good from here! I’ve also included the cover of the magazine as I liked it and god knows what drink the model was making, but the bottle in her hand is Cinzano and definitely the best way to dress for cocktails 🙂
