Someone reminded me today that I hadn’t posted a shot recently of the stunning Velam Loftus, so here is a new shot of her. Taken by Harrison Marks on the African set in 1967 it shows Velma posing topless in what looks like a leopard skin skirt sat on a leopard skin covered sofa. How much leopard skin can you have in one shot, as GHM obviously loved it in this shot! Although Velma does look rather good sat amongst all those spots 🙂
Another original shot from the John archives of June in suburbia. Same location as this shot, but different attire or lack of it! You can’t disagree though that June like this would be a very warming addition to any front room! Cracking furniture and very 1960’s but I do wonder about the curtains and what colour they were? I imagine them to be some psychedelic blue or orange for some reason.
I always like it when John sends me through a new June image and adds a title or some commentary, as he did with this one. This is one of three new images of ‘June in Suburbia’ and as John points out look at the drop-leaf table, radiator pipes and old style TV! Other photo’s from this set were published in Interlude magazine (May 1963) and I’ve also seen different images in Eve Vol.1 No.7 (June 1963) and the colour centrefold of Scarlet Vol.1 No.1 (October 1962).
Now the fact from John I find bizarre! A similar negative to the one above recently sold on eBay on 2nd February 2014 for $850 US dollars!! I know John collects most things June related and I have in the past bought magazines, images and books with her images in, but $850 for one negative! That is some hardcore June fan that paid that for one image. I’m not quite sure I’d go that far, $8.50 yes, but not hundreds (yes I’m a cheapskate!).
Anyway enjoy June in the front room wearing a short leopard skin skirt (what else would you wear in the front room!) and thanks as always to John.
