January 2018 Highlights

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 🙂

Mayfair Makes a Film!

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?

Naughty Neva (Original)

Neva in the doorway of the Lantern Cottage set taken by Harrison Marks in 1966. A stunning dusky woman from Trinidad not blessed with the largest of chests, but more than makes up for it with her thick dark bush.

Nubile Neva (Original)

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 – Practical Photography Cover (1966)

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 🙂

Christine Jensen & The Squirrel! (1968)

Two shots of Christine Jensen from a shoot by Terry Sparks that appeared on a couple of Russell Gay publications or work purported to be by Russell Gay! The first is Fiesta Vol. 1 No.11 (Jan 1968) and the second a Whitestone Book No.84, British Figure Beauty. Christine looks great on both covers, just not sure about that squirrel!
Thanks to Terry for sharing these great covers of Christine.

Not The Normal View of Paula!

Paula Page showing us a different view than we are used to seeing from her, this time a rear view. Taken from Strip Lingerie No.1 (January 1957) we see Paula striping out of her panties and corset giving us a view of her other great asset, her bum! The Boobs are still there just not on full view this time!

Pamela Green – Kamera Calendar, January 1961

A republish of the 1961 Kamera calendar by each individual month rather than en-mass and starting with the stunning in red Pamela Green. Love this outfit on her and the deckchair in the background with her name on it. The prop to the right has been used several times including Kamera Backstage and as part of the glamour film and photo set ‘star Strip’ featuring June Palmer.
