Where did January go? A busy month with regards to posts with 45 posts for the month, which can all be seen here. Some really good shots in amongst them, but I particularly like the Ann Austin from yesterday, Sylvia Bayo (Of course!), the shot early in the month of this unknown model and the beautiful shot of Margaret Nolan in black wig. More to come in February 🙂
An interesting article from the pages of Mayfair Vol.2 No.1 (January 1964) about several well known models making a film for Mayfair. The models in question were Dawn Grayson, Geraldine (Gerry) Brown, Lee Southern, Diane (McNeil) Grant and Pauline Dickenson. All of which apart from Pauline are well known on this blog, especially my favourite in the pink tights, Dawn Grayson.
Now I’m not sure if a film was really made or this was just a set up for the article, but I do know Mayfair did make several super 8mm films later on featuring Syliva Bayo, Mandy Kuypers and Penny Mallett. So maybe they did make the film, but I’m sure I wouldn’t have missed such a film featuring Dawn and friends? Anyone know if it really exists?
The model only known as Neva from an original negative by Harrison Marks taken on the Beach Set. Unfortunately I have very few shots of Neva, which is a real shame as she has the most fantastic thick lush bush on her!
What I do know is that Neva was from Trinidad and posed for one set of stills in January 1966. Photographs from this, which were taken on the Lantern Cottage set and the adjoining beach set appeared in Kamera No’s 74 & 76, one calendar shot from July 1968 and a further two uncensored shots from Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1 (1969), but that’s it.
Vickie Kennedy (Margaret Nolan on the cover of Practical Photography (January 1966)in a fantastic little red baby doll with matching red panties. This studio shot of Margaret was taken by Michael Barrington-Martin who also photographed June Palmer on various occasions. Thanks to Drosophila over on VEF for posting this scan plus plenty of other pages and covers from other PP editions 🙂
