A Cool Southern Breeze! (1967)

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.

Vicky Ashley & Friend – Bathing Beauties

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?

Nancy Roberts – Fun In The Hay (1959)

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 – A Barrow Load of Fun!

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 Southern – Sunhat & Straw! (Original)

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!

Vicky Ashley – Pearls & Chains

A restored version of a print of Vicky Ashley taken by Leslie Bainbridge for Health & Efficiency. Fabulous view of her sat in that armchair, wearing pearls and a chain belt subtly highlighting her smooth neat pussy. This comes from over on VEF by user dave123, who has posted several sets of other models photographed by Bainbridge, with nearly all of them showing off their baby smooth nether regions

A Kneeling Nancy (1959)

Nancy Roberts kneeling on the steps of a building in the grounds of Sheplegh Court, Devon from a scan of a photographic glass plate. Another from the set of Nancy in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old and taken by Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated.
