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!
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?
