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!
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 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.
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?
UK model Mandy Morgan from an original 35mm negative sent over by Paul from Firebird Records. Mandy is another new model to the site, but one I was going to publish shortly anyway, as I have a set of 4 original 35mm colour slides of her as well. I know very little in the way of background to Mandy, other than she appeared in Spick & Span, Girl Illustrated and a few other typical 1960’s glamour publications. In this image and the others I have, Mandy has small very cone liked shaped tits that look a bit odd, but hey tits are tits 🙂
