As promised, June Palmer from the pages of Girl Illustrated Vol.4 No.37 (1970). The magazine shows three monochrome pictures, where she is shown wearing unzipped trousers and has shoulder length hair. The single colour shot appears to be an older photograph. GI states that she is only rarely modelling at the time, but has returned to the pages by popular request. This would tie in with the published date of 1970 and JP’s ‘retirement’ from public modelling, until her re-appearance in 1977.
It feels like a bit of a June Palmer day, not that there is anything wrong with that! Another coloured version of June Palmer from my friend Oldiznewagain over on Tumblr and it always amazes me how good he gets the skin tones on these!
The original comes from Girl Illustrated magazine published in 1970 and is part of a set of 4 images and I’ll be publishing the full set of images later.
Five beautiful shots of Dawn Gayson (Dawn Grayson) from Girls of the World No.1 The accompanying text read:
‘We seriously consider that beautiful Dawn Gayson fully earns the title ‘Special Girl of the World’. Not only is she something special, but she has travelled all over the globe. Born in Scandinavia, not far from where these shots were taken, Dawn now lives in London. Her flame-coloured hair can be seen to full advantage on the back cover of this magazine.’ (below)
A bit of creative writing above on the facts, but definitely special!
