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!
From a set of photographic glass plates, Lee Southern (Grace Jackson) posing on the bed in white negligee and platinum blonde wig. I have 5 shots from this set of Lee and all very tastefully done with her posing on the bed in various positions with the odd bit of cleavage showing 🙂
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.
Another shot of Lee Southern/Sothern (Grace Jackson) taken on a photographic glass plate in 1960. The location of this one seems to be in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in Devon, as I have other shots of her showing more of the grounds. This set has Lee posing in a more natural state as we get a clear view of her thick dark bush in this shot as she poses out and about. I also love the matching leopardskin scarf and shawl that doubles up as a rug for her to pose on!
Lee Sothern (Grace Jackson) sat posing on the pool edge at Spielplatz Naturist Club, which sure looks fun and cooling! Another print from a photographic glass plate and another naturist club for Lee to pose at, similar to this shot of her at Sheplegh Court.
Taken on 26th May, 1960 Lee was 24 and a few years younger than the shot at Sheplegh, not that you can tell! It seems that both clubs were very popular with the photographers back then, especially Spielplatz to take models to for photo-shoots, but one wonders if they had to strip off too?
A silver gelatin print from a glass photographic plate of Lee Sothern (Grace Jackson) taken poolside at Sheplegh Court, South Devon in 1963 . Research has shown that Sheplegh Court was another naturist resort based around a large manor house and similar to that of Spielplatz Naturist Club, but down in the warmer climates of Devon and was running up until the late 1980’s.
A wonderful shot of Lee with long hair (extensions?) and her tanned body, who was 27 years old at the time this was taken. Unknown photographer, but I’ve seen similar shots of Lee like this that have appeared in H&E magazine, which would make sense with the location. I have several others of Lee at Sheplegh Court, as well as others of her at Spielplatz, so she was obviously doing the rounds at the naturist clubs in the early 1960’s. Also another variation of her name spelling as well, as they did back then 🙂
Grace Jackson (Lee Southern) from a scan of an early Walton slide sent through by Jeff B. A beautiful shot of Grace posing on a hay bale, apart from a red shawl for effect.
There is something about a shot of a gorgeous woman pulling her skirt up to reveal her shapely legs clad in stockings and supported by suspenders! A prime example above of Grace Jackson doing just that and sometimes it’s more about the titillation of the reveal than nudity itself.
From Connoisseurs Choice & Modelling Review Magazine Vol.5 No.9
Here’s a new one to me from the pages of Mayfair Magazine Vol.1 No.4 (December 1966) a line up of well know 1960’s models. Unless I am mistaken from left to right we have Lee Southern (Grace Jackson), Dawn Grayson, Teri Martine, Unknown, Bobby Shaw and finally Annette Johnson. Sorry I can’t place the lovely in red, but she looks familiar, but not a regular on here, anyone put me out of my misery and name her?
Thanks must go to Dasduffer over on VEF for scanning and sharing this, along with some new Dawn Grayson and Teri Martine material from early Mayfair issues, which I hope to share here soon.
