Margaret Stewart’s Youthful Spring! (1960’s)

Three shots of UK model, Margaret Stewart posing outdoors at one with nature, with all three shots taken by Leslie Bainbridge on photographic glass plates. Again, it is unknown where these shots were published, if indeed they were, but more than likely due to the style of them, shot for the likes of Health & Efficiency (H&E). Unknown location, but I do like the top shot of her posing in the fountain and her body being sprayed with the water 🙂

Nancy Roberts – A Walk on The Wild Side!

OK, more like a crawl, but I love this shot of Nancy Roberts kneeling on all fours in the grass, especially the look on her face! A very ‘You want it? Come and get it’ look as she poses like that.

Another from the set of Nancy 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 recognise the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. Who also took a set of shots I’ve been posting of Lee Southern as well.

June Palmer – Three Birds in a Bush!

I came across this shot over on Tumblr posted by Magoothings and had never seen this shot of June before. The shot taken in a garden location features not only a young June, but also Nancy Roberts (stood) and Maureen Frawley a third unknown model. I never knew June had posed with Nancy, but it would make sense that their paths must have crossed at some point and this is one of those occasions. At a guess I think this location may be somewhere like Sheplegh Court around 1960, with the photographer being Leslie Bainbridge? Only because both June and Nancy posed for Leslie early in their careers, but I may be completely wrong.

It’s still a great photo of June and friends and when I asked about it’s original, Magoothings said he’d seen a copy of this shot on eBay Germany, but I could find it to see if there were any others.  Thanks to Magoothings for letting me share this great image, plus another of Nancy over on Kamera Club, and if anyone can shed any light on this image or the third model, please do let me know?

Edit: Thanks to Portland, who has identified the third model as Maureen Frawley 🙂

Lee Southern – Poolside Poses (Originals)

Three more silver gelatin prints of Lee Sothern (Southern) from photographic glass plates. These were again taken poolside at Sheplegh Court down in South Devon in the 1960’s, although in this shoot the pool seems to be empty in these, so maybe a later date than the shot I posted here?

Three great poses by Lee and after a bit of detective work I’ve identified the photographer as  Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustated.

June on Glass, Box 1 Plate No.7 – Seated View (Original)

The 7th glass photographic plate of June taken by Leslie Bainbridge in the studio (12th August, 1960). This shot has June sat with her legs out to one side as she plays with her necklace, unfortunately there is a shadow on the right hand side and I’m not sure if that was in the studio at the time or on the glass plate itself. Still a worthy shot of June 🙂

June on Glass – Strike a Pose! (Original)

The sixth shot from the set of images taken of June in the studio on glass photographic plates (12th August, 1960). This wonderful shot shows June sat striking a pose very similar to the ‘Vogue’ shot by Madonna, but with even less clothes on! Another very clean, crisp uncensored shot of June and I never tire of this set of images of her, with more still to come.

June on Glass, Box 1 Plate No.5 – An Open View (Original)

The fifth shot of June converted by John from a set of original glass photographic plates taken by Leslie Bainbridge in 1960 (12th August).

This is again an intimate and open shot of June, as it clearly shows her smooth nether region and protruding labia. There are other uncensored shots of June in her early career, but most offer a front view and don’t show the detail as in this shot. A very open bodied pose of June half kneeling with her arms above her, but such a pose seems to exaggerate and pronounce June’s labia in this shot, but never makes the shot seem anything other than artistic.  A stunningly intimate pose from June and as you can see the cropped version (top) and original (bottom) are very similar with very little cropping required.

June on Glass – Junoesque Curves (Original)

What a view! A nude June kneeling legs apart with her back half tilted away from the camera, thus giving us a perfect view of her wonderful ass and a glimpse of boob in the same shot! An original scan from John’s collection, from his second box of glass plates of June taken in 1960. So many different lines and curves to admire in this restored shot.  This is plate No.11 from box 2 dated 20th September 1960 and taken by Leslie Bainbridge.

And yes ‘Junoesque’ is a real word!
