Bea Bea Chu-Chu on the cover of Solo No.22 (1961) by Harrison Marks. Another magazine from the Solo collection providing a complete set of images and poses of one model, this time Bea Bea. Although not one of my favourites you cannot deny she had a great pair of tits on her!
Lorraine Burnett looking very stern on the cover of Kamera No.4 (1957) by Harrison Marks. Obviously not impressed by something as she stands there hands on hips thrusting her ample bosom forwards. Although you can’t take her too seriously stood like like with very little on, now can you?
Another staple diet for me back in the 1980’s was the Paul Raymond publication Escort, which was always on my buy list each month, although not many copies survived!
I loved how they published so called girls from major UK towns each month, all looking fabulously hot and willing to strip or drop their knickers for the camera. I liked to believe at the time they were actual girls from that town, but looking back now most were professional models. Such an example is the very ample Angel from Bournemouth, who willingly flashed her big tits and hairy pussy within the pages of the magazine, but is actually Jennifer Eccles. Jennifer went on later in her career to do far more than stripping in front of the camera, but stayed a favourite of mine even to today.
More happy memories from the 80’s!
An early Christmas present to myself arrived today 🙂 Consecutive copies of Kamera from No.70 through to the last edition at No.89. All are in very good condition considering they are 50 years old, the pages are clean,crisp and flat with no fading and the colour on the covers as you can see is very good as well.
Very pleased with my purchase and it fills a big gap in my collection of the later Kamera editions, which surprisingly are harder to come by than some of the earlier ones! This little lot also features some of my favourite models such as Barbara Halks, Hyldagarde (Hilde Beck), Velma Loftus and June Palmer of course! This should keep me busy scanning on the run up to Christmas and it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it! Not that I mind staring at pages of naked women each day 🙂
I also have some duplicates, so look out for those being sold off to help my addiction in the near future! The duplicates are No.70, 80, 81, 86, 87 and No.88 if anyone is interested and wants to make me a reasonable offer?
The cover of the Diane Weber Album published by Kamera Publications. Although this and a few other magazines were published via Kamera Publications they were not Harrison Marks’ photographs, but imports from the USA. This particular magazine featured photographs of Diane Webber (Marguerite Empey) taken by Bunny Yeager. A very nice collection of photo’s of Diane posing down at the beach.
Sylvia Bayo and friend on the cover of Nylon Flash No.19, including the same full image from inside the magazine. Another great find of a magazine, as it includes a full 48 pages of Sylvia and friend stripping out of their underwear. I’m sure it was done on purpose, but the contrast of Sylvia in white panties against the other model in black panties works perfectly. The opposing underwear colours and skin tones highlight the assets of each other throughout and there are some superb shots of Sylvia’s great round arse as she’s helped out of her panties by the friend!
I’ll publish the full magazine once I’ve edited the whole thing and stop getting distracted by Sylvia 🙂
A set of covers from the publication ‘Light & Shade’ from the late 1950’s. I have a set of 15 covers from No.1 to No.15, but have no idea if that is a full set? These were produced by Russell Gay and published by Dalrow Publication Ltd. Pennine Publications, Bolton. A very similar set of magazines in the same style, including Tr-coloured covers was published under the title ‘Line & Form’, but by Eva Grant (I also have a set of these to edit and post).
I love the covers of this magazine especially the use of one primary colour per cover. and I think my favourites are No.8, No.9 (June Simpson) and No.12. Thanks must go to Paul from Firebird Records for all of these magazines and covers, a superb collection!
Jean Belvin on the cover of Klix Magazine No.1 from the late 1950’s. Jean also posed for Harrison Marks in some of the first Kamera magazines, as well as many other popular glamour publications. I only have a copy of the cover unfortunately, as I am curious as to what the free gift offer was?
Two shots of June Palmer on different magazine covers from the same photo shoot, but wearing different hats! The first is from Practical Photography (June 1966) and the second from the US publication Man Junior (November 1967). In both June is wearing a two piece white swimming costume and posing with a tulip in front of a 1950’s bull fighting poster, but wearing different hats.
The shoot obviously had a Spanish theme to it with the poster in the background and the two types of hats she is wearing, a Sombrero cordobés the smaller black hat and the more well known larger Sombrero. I prefer the first cover as it is just a standard photo of June, whereas the Man Junior cover looks to be lower quality giving it an almost painting feel to it.
Thanks to both John W and Paul from Firebird Records for the two different covers of June
