Lee Southern (Sothern) cooling off in the sea on the cover of Health & Efficiency (June 1967). Nothing risqué about this cover, but Lee looks sexy and cool at the same time in her blue bikini as she takes a splash in the sea. Taken at a beach close to Sheplegh Court in Devon, which was a popular haunt of editor Leslie Bainbridge.
A short haired Vicky Ashley and unknown friend taking a quick nude dip in the pool! Taken by Leslie Bainbridge of Girl Illustrated and H&E fame I’m sure this shot must have appeared in either but not sure? Anyone know the other model on the right, she looks familiar but not ringing any bells?
A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts laying in the hay at Sheplegh Court. Taken on a glass plate by Leslie Bainbridge in September 1959 Nancy looks fabulous as she lays in the hay basking in the sun.
Lee Southern (Sothern) sat posing in a very dodgy old wheelbarrow in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1963. From a set of Lee in and around the grounds of Sheplegh and taken by Leslie Bainbridge on a glass photographic plate.
Lee Sothern (Southern) or Grace Jackson wearing just a sunhat as she poses with a piece of straw in the grounds of Sheplegh Court. Scanned from a glass photographic plate and taken in 1960 when she was apparently 24!
