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.

Dawn & Gloria – The Inseparables!

Dawn Grayson & Gloria Lomax as Melissa & Jenny from the US publication ‘Girl Friends’, appearing both on the cover and a small 3 page article titled The Inseparables!

Funnily enough both girls were friends or knew each other in real life and originally came from Luton, travelling up on the train to London for modelling jobs. Nice to see them appearing together in these photo’s although I do have an original of them posing together with a third model posted here. Not sure about the dodgy wig Gloria seems to be wearing in these shots, I assume it’s a wig!

Helga Berk – Girl Illustrated Cover (1969)

Helga Berkmann on the cover of Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.26 (1969), with a different shot from this set also appearing in GI Vol.4 No.39 (1970). Normally I’d have passed this by without a second glance, but she also posed for Harrison Marks and was on my list of unknown Models. I posted this original shot of her back in 2015 from my negative collection and have several others of her as well.

Like many models back then she appeared in numerous publications such as Escort, Fiesta, Carnival, GI and more and all with various alterations to her name. The main name that appears seems to be Helga Berk/Berkmann, but she also appeared as Helga Nolan and Mara Osterman in Mayfair. The shots by GHM and in GI have her wearing a short wig, but it seems her actual hair is slightly longer and blonde.

Another unknown model named and off the list 🙂

The Very Exotic Sylvia Bayo!

Sylvia Bayo on the cover of the ‘Super Blackbird Special’ Exotic No.7 published by Pennine Magazines and distributed by David Gold. I’m a big fan of Sylvia as regulars know and been after a copy of this magazine for a while, so a big thanks to Ray for sending me a copy. And the magazine doesn’t disappoint with over 30 images of the lovely Sylvia stripping down to just her white panties and stockings, although she could have gone a bit further if I’m honest! 

A bit politically incorrect today by giving it a sub-heading ‘Blackbird Special’, but hey that is what she is a very special black bird or ebony babe, which ever you wish to use. There are also 6 images of Gerry Brown and one of Sue Bond at the end, so a mixture of black and white in the end 🙂
