Jean Spaul – Not Just The Office Girl (1957)

A very elegant looking Jean Spaul (Sporle) from Kamera No.4 P4 (1957) who not only posed nude for many of the early Kamera editions, but also got the job as one of the girls in the office at Harrison Marks studio. What an office stunner!

Kamera No.27 Cover (1959)

One of my favourite early Kamera covers featuring Pamela Green and Jean Spaul (Sporle) posing in the living room of GHM’s flat. Not much more you need to say about it really, other than it’s a classic cover and even today has an elegance and style about it that can’t be replicated.

Pam & Jean – Balcony With a View! (Original)

A stunning view in more than one way of Jean Spaul (Sporle) and Pamela Green. Taken by Harrison Marks on the balcony of the apartment he owned with Pam down in Hampstead and obviously a good position for a spot of nude sunbathing! The original cropped version of Pam and Jean together on this balcony was published in Kamera No.27 P27 (1960) and also features several other shots of the two, in and around the grounds of the apartment.

Thanks to Simon for sending through this scan of this original negative. Interestingly the actual negative, along with others that Simon has sent through has blue marking or pen added over the pubic regions. One assumes this may have been added as part of the developing process to hide sensitive bits when printed for publication? Anyone heard of this before, as it’s the first I’ve seen or heard about it. Thankfully modern scanners can be adapted to remove the blue colour, so we get to see Jean and Pam in all their fully glory, or at least a peak at it!

Jean, What a Doll! (1957)

Jean Sporle (Spaul) in a sheer little black baby doll by Harrison Marks published Pin-Up No.6 (June 1957). Jean modelled for GHM on various occasions and also ended up working for him and Pamela Green in the offices at Gerrard Street. She originally was only looking for non-nude modelling work, but that soon changed after meeting Harrison Marks!

Jean Spaul – All Made Up! (1958)

A very made-up Jean Spaul (Sporle) from Kamera Special No.2 P27 (1958). Jean with her hair pulled back and big dangly earrings, again with striking make-up, what I can’t make my mind up about though, is if she was ‘blacked up’ in this shot? Similar to Pamela Green as Princess Sonmar Harriks I’ve seen shots in Kamera of Jean ‘blacked up’ from head to foot, but can’t quite decide if this is one of those shots, or just her make-up and lighting?

Jean Spaul & Gaby Rougier (1958)

Jean Spaul (Sporle) and the model now identified as Gaby Rougier from Kamera No.17 (1958). Jean and Gaby appear multiple times together in Kamera No.17 and Kamera No.29, with Gaby also appearing solo in Kamera No.29. Thanks to Jeff for another good spot at identifying Gaby, who also appears in Fiesta Autumn Special 1957.

Further evidence below from Jeff to support his theory this is one such model named Gaby Rougier, as she is named in the article and has the beauty spot!

Gaby sent through by Phil D, doesn’t seem to be the same person or maybe just a few years older?

Backstage Beauties – Maria Hale & Jean Spaul (1959)

Another double delight of beauties, this time Jean Spaul (Sporle) and Maria Hale from the 1959 special Kamera Backstage. Both Jean and Maria appear through-out this special, but more-so Maria both as herself (short dark hair) and predominately as Madeleine Mado (long blonde wig).
