A superb black and white image of Dawn Grayson posing on a white wrought iron bench on the lawn at Ewhurst Manor from the original negative. Taken by Harrison Marks in the early 1960’s this shot along with several others appeared in Solo No.43 (1964) dedicated to Dawn. This particular pouting shot appeared on page 41 and the close up really shows off her smouldering pouty look as she stares directly at the camera. There are also shots of Dawn and GHM himself posing on this bench, along with Dawn posing alongside another model named as Lisa Hamilton, of which I have several of the negatives as well.
One advantage of having the original negative is you can scan in much closer to see the details, that the print in the original publication doesn’t afford you. The original medium format negative, which is 6cm by 6cm square also allows you to see much more of Ewhurst, including the lawn, gardens and front entrance than these cropped version show, but who wants to see the background when you have a nude Dawn Grayson to look at!
Paula Page by Harrison Marks as she lays naked on the grass enjoying the sun! I don’t know why, but Paula’s assets look larger than normal in this shot, it must be the position and use of her arms that amplifies the size!
A second cheeky little shot of Dawn Grayson posing in a very short sheer pink negligee that leaves little to the imagination! Taken outdoors at the same location as this original shot it comes from a scan of an original 35mm Kodak slide from my own Dawn collection and is the last of two shots I have from this set.

I finally have the fourth slide from the Esquire 35mm colour slide set No.48 featuring June Simpson posing nude in a red paddling pool! I’ve restored the colour on all four now and you can see scans of the original slides before restoration below. I’ve also included the original advert for the set that was featured in a catalogue for Esquire slide sets. As you will see these were part of a set of 8, but don’t think the other 4 slides were of June, but I may be wrong? All of the the images of June in the red paddling pool I’ve posted so far can be found here.

I have very few good shots of Maxine King, but this is one of them. This shot along with the other shot I’ve posted here seem to be taken at the same time on location at Ewhurst I suspect around 1964/65? This beautiful shot has Maxine kneeling on the lawn trying to hide her perky little tits and failing 🙂
