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 🙂
Lorraine Burnett in long blonde wig on 3 separate covers of Line and Form during the early 1960’s. The publishers of this magazine defiantly got their moneys worth from Lorraine as she appeared on the cover of three consecutive editions of Line and Form with No.20 (Yellow), No.21 (Orange) and No.22 (Blue).
Lorraine also appeared multiple times within the pages of these editions plus as well as others, so obviously a favourite. These are fabulous shots of Lorraine’s curvy figure on the covers and the use of light and shade to highlight her magnificent bust! I think my favourite is the blue cover 🙂
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
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 🙂
