Nancy Roberts – Sheplegh Sweetheart!

Another from the set of Nancy Roberts taken in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old! Looking at the details on the box of these glass plates I now recognize the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. A stunning shot of Nancy who seems to appear in many of Bainbridge’s early H&E magazines and several ‘naturist’ films, including the new one in my collection ‘World Without Clothes’.

Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge (Original)

A beautiful 10 x 8 original print of Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge. I have literally 100’s of shots of Dawn in my collection and I’m trying to remember if I have any of her that show her so open and exposed? Saying that someone did mention to me that Bainbridge had a way of making the models relax and ‘open up’ for him and it certainly looks like it worked for Dawn.

This is one of my favourite recent shots of Dawn, along with another print of her by Bainbridge. I’m also trying to remember if I’ve ever seen her in the pages of H&E, she appears on various covers and within Girl Illustrated, the other Bainbridge publication, but I’ve only ever seen her on the cover of H&E No.835 (Nov 1970). Does anyone know if she ever appeared within the pages of H&E? Looking at the above shot it could well have appeared in either of the publications, if at all, but surely too good not to publish?

Blonde & Bare! (Original)

A stunning view of an unknown beauty taken by Leslie Bainbridge and from the collection of member John’s original prints. A perfect pose in the sun of this unknown blonde bare beauty with a great figure and tan lines highlighting the white bits and smooth pussy. No idea who she is and unless anyone else can identify her she’s down in the Leslie Bainbridge list as Unknown Model No.5

Claire Dobson – A Kneeling Cherub! (Original)

A simple but effective shot of Claire Dobson by Leslie Bainbridge kneeling on some cushions nude. I have a mixture of shots featuring Claire from original prints to several contact sheets and in nearly all of them Claire is showing off her fabulous body and perfectly smooth pussy, apart from one small set. In that set of 6 prints, not only is Claire wearing some clothes, but she also sports a full hairy pussy too. She looks to be the same age, so I wonder if she was persuaded by Bainbridge to get rid of the hair at some point?

Another model to add to the Bainbridge/Wren collection 🙂

A Wet & Wonderful Hazel! (Original)

A wet and wonderful view of Hazel Bradshaw by either Leslie Bainbridge or potentially Murray Wren. Hazel is one of a number of models that posed for and appeared in the pages of H&E, although I have no actual references to magazine numbers in which she appeared. Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970’s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge.

So where I’ve originally credited photo’s to Bainbridge they could well be by Wren instead, as the styles and locations are the same, so who knows! I also have over 200 different shots of Hazel from original contact sheets and prints in various locations both indoors and out. This shot seems to be on the sea edge as she kneels on some rocks showing off her naked body and perky nipples and like most Bainbridge/Wren models was completely shaven down below 🙂

Rigby’s Rear! (Original)

Another shot of Jacki Rigby taken by Leslie Bainbridge in the late 1960’s posing nude in a leather armchair from this set. This time a rather nice rear view showing off her bum and a bit more, plus one small pert tit and nipple!

Jacki Rigby – A Natural View (Original)

Jacki Rigby taken by Leslie Bainbridge in the late 1960’s posing nude in the great outdoors. Of course Leslie Bainbridge was the man behind the publications Health & Efficiency (H&E) and I suspect this was for H&E rather than GI as it’s outdoors and I have various shots of Jacki posing in fields, on fences and in trees. Shots from this set also appeared in Outdoor Leisure No.37 also by Leslie and thanks to member Tonal Range for reminding me 🙂

Lee Southern Striking a Pose! (Original)

Another shot of Lee Southern (Grace Jackson) striking a pose on the lawn at Sheplegh Court naturist club in 1960. Scanned from a glass photographic plate and taken in 1960 when she was apparently 24 and wearing a dodgy blonde wig for some reason?
