June on Glass – Box 1, Plate No.12 (Original)

Yet another fantastic shot of a young June Palmer posing nude for Leslie Bainbridge in the studio in 1960, using photographic glass plates. Thanks to John W for this full set of original images.

June on Glass, Box 1 Plate No.7 – Seated View (Original)

The 7th glass photographic plate of June taken by Leslie Bainbridge in the studio (12th August, 1960). This shot has June sat with her legs out to one side as she plays with her necklace, unfortunately there is a shadow on the right hand side and I’m not sure if that was in the studio at the time or on the glass plate itself. Still a worthy shot of June 🙂

June on Glass – Strike a Pose! (Original)

The sixth shot from the set of images taken of June in the studio on glass photographic plates (12th August, 1960). This wonderful shot shows June sat striking a pose very similar to the ‘Vogue’ shot by Madonna, but with even less clothes on! Another very clean, crisp uncensored shot of June and I never tire of this set of images of her, with more still to come.

June on Glass, Box 1 Plate No.5 – An Open View (Original)

The fifth shot of June converted by John from a set of original glass photographic plates taken by Leslie Bainbridge in 1960 (12th August).

This is again an intimate and open shot of June, as it clearly shows her smooth nether region and protruding labia. There are other uncensored shots of June in her early career, but most offer a front view and don’t show the detail as in this shot. A very open bodied pose of June half kneeling with her arms above her, but such a pose seems to exaggerate and pronounce June’s labia in this shot, but never makes the shot seem anything other than artistic.  A stunningly intimate pose from June and as you can see the cropped version (top) and original (bottom) are very similar with very little cropping required.

June on Glass, Box 1 Plate No.4 – An Intimate Study (Original)

The fourth shot of June converted by John from a set of original glass photographic plates taken by Leslie Bainbridge in 1960 (12th August).

This has to be one of the more intimate shots of June I’ve seen, as it clearly shows her smooth nether region and protruding labia. There are other uncensored shots of June in her early career, but most offer a front view and don’t show the detail as in this shot.  Likewise later in her career she has a more natural look that hides the labia, which is an erotic look in itself. This view of her with no hair just seems so much more intimate and not a view we often see, either by the way June has posed or at the hand of the retouchers! A stunningly intimate pose from June!

June on Glass in Colour – Part 3 (Original)

The last of the 3 restored coloured versions from June on Glass as the images produced from the glass plate negatives from John. Again, the original was very red, so I have  restored it as best I can under the circumstances, but still slightly pinker than I’d want.

June on Glass – Box 1, Plate No.2 (Original)

The second shot of June from the first box (12th August, 1960) of photographic glass plates scanned by John. All of these shots show a naked June posing in various potions for the camera and this shot is described on the box as ‘Kneeling on knees front hands under chin’. A beautiful clean shot showing June’s body at it’s best and completely untouched by censors!

Again, below I have a print from the same glass plate showing the ‘mark-up’ of the shot for publication or printing. I don’t recall seeing any of these being published though?

June on Glass in Colour – Part 2

A colour shot from the same photo shoot (June on Glass) as the images produced from the glass plate negatives from John. This is the second of 3 colour shots and they all seem to be very similar in the way June poses, the background and June’s look. The originals are very red, so I have  restored them as best I can under the circumstances.

June on Glass in Colour

This is an interesting one of June that I found over on eBay, as it seems to be a colour shot from the same photo shoot (June on Glass) as the images produced from the glass plate negatives from John. I have 3 colour shots and they all seem to be very similar in the way June poses, the background and June’s look. The originals are very red, so I have  restored them as best I can under the circumstances.

June on Glass – Behind The Scenes (Original)

As you will have seen in this post, John recently sent me a set of scans of June taken from glass photographic plates and that was the first image I had restored and published from the set. This post now gives you some more details of the fantastic set of images that John sent me, plus some information behind the set. John purchased two sets of photographic glass plates of June from a seller on eBay and they were sent in the original box with a description of each plate written on the box.

As you can see there are details about the model (June), the date of the shoot and then the glass plates listed with a description of the pose. The first interesting point is June’s apparent age on the box, showing her as 21 years old in 1960, which according to her date of birth isn’t quite right! If these were taken on 20th August 1960, she would actually have been 20 not 21, so was this a mistake or did she have to be 21 to have the photo’s taken, so a little white lie?

Also included in the box was a close up print of June wearing a necklace with the  image ‘marked up’ in red. So one assumes that this was the intended crop of the shot for printing or publication? I’ve included a scan of the ‘mark-up’ as well with some scratches removed, but otherwise left as printed.

I’ve included the original scan of this glass plate from John, which is No.1 on the box – Portrait (Half) with necklace. Again I’ve restored the image from the original glass scan, as it was very dark.

Finally I then restored and cropped the image as it was intended in the ‘mark-up’ for publication, which was the shot in my first post here

This is the first box of 16 glass plates from John and I have another set of 16 to edit and publish as well, so will do those soon. Another funny coincidence to this set, was that prior to John sending the scans through to me a few weeks before Minimunster had sent me some scans of 6 contact sheets she had of June. When I saw John’s scans I knew they looked familiar and looking back found the contact sheets, which on checking are all prints from John’s glass plates and all marked up with the intended crop for publication. I have small copies fo the contact sheets, but have asked Mini for larger scans so I can add them to this collection of shots for completeness.

Enjoy!
