A Cool Southern Breeze! (1967)

Lee Southern (Sothern) cooling off in the sea on the cover of Health & Efficiency (June 1967). Nothing risqué about this cover, but Lee looks sexy and cool at the same time in her blue bikini as she takes a splash in the sea. Taken at a beach close to Sheplegh Court in Devon, which was a popular haunt of editor Leslie Bainbridge.

Lesley From Leicester! (1981)

I just love these double page spreads of Lesley Cooper from Escort Vol.1 No.6 (June 1981). The first shot is the wrap round cover of the magazine and the second the centre page spread, so to speak! Obviously there was a limit on how far you could go in the likes of Escort, but Lesley did the harder stuff as well and can be seen here from Whitehouse showing much more!

June Palmer – Same Style, Different Hats! (1966)

Two shots of June Palmer on different magazine covers from the same photo shoot, but wearing different hats! The first is from Practical Photography (June 1966) and the second from the US publication Man Junior (November 1967). In both June is wearing a two piece white swimming costume and posing with a tulip in front of a 1950’s bull fighting poster, but wearing different hats.

The shoot obviously had a Spanish theme to it with the poster in the background and the two types of hats she is wearing, a Sombrero cordobés the smaller black hat and the more well known larger Sombrero. I prefer the first cover as it is just a standard photo of June, whereas the Man Junior cover looks to be lower quality giving it an almost painting feel to it.

Thanks to both John W and Paul from Firebird Records for the two different covers of June

Penny Winters – Kamera Calendar, June 1968

Penny Winters propping up a tree from the June page of the 1968 Kamera Calendar. Probably a shot that was originally taken of Penny down in Cornwall as part of the Kamera on Location 66 set, as the river in the background seems similar to other shots from that set. Nice strategically placed knee and shadow 🙂
