A Pouting Rita From Études Moderne (1950’s)

Rita Landre (Pamela Green) pouting as she poses for the camera of Harrison Marks. Taken from the magazine Études Moderne P31 (1950’s) by Marks and featuring plenty of early Pam as herself and Rita.

Thanks to Firebird Records for a copy of this fantastic early Harrison Marks publication

Gina by Rosalinda

The cover of Gina by Rosalinda which was a small format magazine full of images featuring ‘Gina’ or as we know her Ann Austin! I’ve seen other magazines ‘by Rosalinda’ and had always assumed incorrectly that this was the name of the publisher or such. It actually turns out that Rosalinda is a female photographer and this magazine actually features a part mirror selfie of Rosalinda and Ann. Well there you go another thing I didn’t know!

Ann Wilson – The View From a Wall (Original)

Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records I have a growing collection of 35mm slide sets (200+ at the last count), with some of the sets being of well known models from that time. I also have a number of individual slides and unknown models of varying quality, and I’m slowly working through them to try and restore them, as most are faded or have that familiar purple tinge.

The above is one of the single restored slides and of Ann Wilson a popular model of Harrison Marks and others in the late 1960’s. This was originally very red, but think it’s come up pretty well and works still being slight red, as Ann was a redhead and the shirt was dark red. Unfortunately the highlights were blown out around her chest, but you still see the important bits i.e the small perky nipples! Not sure about the fake brick wallpaper in the background, but it works!

Thanks to Paul for this and all the other slides, most of which he eventually puts up for sale over on eBay 🙂

Nancy Roberts – What a Choice!

Nancy Roberts on the cover of Connoisseurs Choice and Modelling Review Vol.4 No.2. I have a whole collection of CC & MR covers, many with familiar faces and bodies on the covers, it’s just a case of getting round to edit and post them, but love this one of Nancy.

Unknown Kneeling Nude (1960’s)

I rather like this attractive model from a restored 35mm colour slide sent over by Paul from Firebird Records, but have no idea who she is? It comes from a set of 12 slides of this model posing in and stripping out of a sheer pink negligee on the wicker chair, but that’s about it! I’m not even sure that isn’t a wig which doesn’t help in trying to identify her, but anyone recognise her?
