Nancy Roberts – Fun In The Hay (1959)

A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts laying in the hay at Sheplegh Court. Taken on a glass plate by Leslie Bainbridge in September 1959 Nancy looks fabulous as she lays in the hay basking in the sun.

Paula Page – Sunny Side Up! (Original)

Paula Page by Harrison Marks as she lays naked on the grass enjoying the sun! I don’t know why, but Paula’s assets look larger than normal in this shot, it must be the position and use of her arms that amplifies the size!

A Kneeling Nancy (1959)

Nancy Roberts kneeling on the steps of a building in the grounds of Sheplegh Court, Devon from a scan of a photographic glass plate. Another from the set of Nancy in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old and taken by Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated.

Nancy Roberts – A Walk on The Wild Side!

OK, more like a crawl, but I love this shot of Nancy Roberts kneeling on all fours in the grass, especially the look on her face! A very ‘You want it? Come and get it’ look as she poses like that.

Another from the set of Nancy taken in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old! Looking at the details on the box of these glass plates I now recognise the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. Who also took a set of shots I’ve been posting of Lee Southern as well.

A Cuddle From The Boss! (Original)

A different shot from an original negative, showing a semi informal shot of Harrison Marks himself posing with Monique Devereux in the late 1960’s. Taken on a sunny day in the grounds of either Ewhurst or Walden (at a guess) it shows GHM giving scantily clad and topless Monique a cuddle for the camera. I’d say a rare shot of GHM in front of the camera, but there seems to be plenty of informal shots around of him with the models taken by his team, and there was always such a photo at the beginning of most editions of Kamera and Solo.  A great shot of him regardless and he has a big grin on his face, but wouldn’t you with your arms wrapped around Monqiue dressed like that!

The camera you can see to his side is an Arriflex cine camera, probably 16mm with extendible hood, so obviously shooting one of the many glamour films he did with Monique.
