The Fabulous Maxine (1959)

The fabulous Maxine (Elaine Ecke) posing for Harrison Marks amongst the hay from Solo No.12 P21 (1959). A whole 32 page magazine dedicated to one of GHM’s early models Maxine, she posed for him before Kamera and Solo were produced and appeared in the likes of Fiesta. Maxine had a stunning rubenesque figure, that was a pleasure to view in all its curvy glory and I see the wagon wheel makes an appearance again 🙂

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.

A Roll in The Hay With Ann (Original)

The beautiful buxom Ann Austin posing in the hay by Harrison Marks. This comes from a restored 35mm colour Pamar slide sent over by Kevin and I believe although there is hay/straw in the shot this was taken on the Loft set? Never seen a copy of this slide before and it’s always a pleasure to see a bit of Ann! I believe although there is hay/straw in the shot this was taken on the Loft set?

Making Hay With Margaret Warhurst (Original)

I original posted a version of this image here back in 2013 and it was an early attempt at restoring a downloaded copy of the image. Well I now have a better copy of the original that shows just how bad my first attempts at restoring images were! This comes from a direct scan of the Pamar slide mass produced for the market by Harrison Marks back in the late 1950’s and although still a copy (Interneg) of the original negative, the quality and colour is far superior to my original effort! The hay actually looks the right colour and until seeing this shot I didn’t realize Margaret had a blue headband in her hair! The slide also shows that it should be viewed this way, rather than my first version.

Much prefer this version, as you get to see the shot in so much more detail, including Margaret’s perfect red lips and tits!
