I’ve already published a copy of this cover on the ‘Specials and Calendar’s’ page, but this is a scan from my own copy which was my latest purchase via eBay and arrived last week. Published by Harrison Marks in December 1957 the cover features June Simpson, one of the favourite 50’s models.
The above image has been restored to remove several creases and the edge was well worn, but the overall condition of this magazine of over 57 years is very good. Like all Kamera editions it’s a small digest size magazine featuring 98 pages of your favourite early Harrison Marks models. These include Pamela Green, June Simpson, Marie Deveraux, Julie, June Russell, Diane Hedges, Maxine, Eva Wild and Lydia Barton to name a few.
An excellent addition to my growing Kamera collection, which now stands at 9 standard Kamera Editions, Kamera Special No.1, Kamera Backstage and the 1960 Kamera Calendar. Plenty more to collect and keep me going 🙂
Margaret Nolan from the centre pages of Glamorous Girls No.2, with the same image appearing in one of the later editions of Kamera that Margaret appeared in, sometime after No.50. Although the pose looks good I’m sure it wasn’t easy to stay balanced like that on that branch for long! No splinters anywhere delicate one hopes.
Jean Spaul posing against some bill posters for a shot for Kamera Backstage (1959). Looking very glamorous and made up in this shot with thick black eyelashes and perfect lipstick, very 1950’s!
The buxom Maxine (Elaine Ecke) from the centre pages of Kamera No.17 (1959) with colours restored and staples removed, but some fading across the top, sorry! my god she was a busty girl
Oldiznewagain has been busy recently with his coloured versions of old classics and here is another. This time a rear view of Jackie Salt from Kamera No.44 (Not June Palmer!) and the original version below it. I did notice that Angela Jones had been removed from between Jackies legs (Oooer!), but I suppose it’s more aesthetically pleasing that way? Personally I’d have used the image below of Jackie, as far less messing about with trying to remove Angela from between Jackie s legs, if you know what I mean!
On a separate note I wonder if I spend too much time looking at these girls if i can recognise Jackie’s arse at first glance!
This stunning unknown blonde only appears twice in Kamera No.29 (1960), but certainly has an impact, but can anyone identify her as I can’t? In the second shot she appears posing with Jean Spaul.
Update: This model has now been identified as Gaby Rougier, thanks to Jeff 🙂
The exquisite figure of Jennifer Garland in stockings and garters as seen through a bed frame from Kamera No.17
