June Simpson – Kamera Special No.1

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 Branching Out!

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.

Jackie Salt Rear View (Coloured)

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!

Unknown Beauty Spot Blonde (Gaby Rougier)

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 🙂

Virginia Green in The Mirror (Full Version)

 

A stunning image of Virginia Green that I originally published here, but this is probably the original as it’s not cropped at the sides.  Much better quality and you get to see Ann Austin in the photo on the wall, signed by Harrison Marks. This image in it’s cropped version appeared on the last page of Solo no.25 P32 (1960) dedicated to Virginia.
