A young Rosa Domaille later known as Eve Eden on the cover of Beautiful Britons No.23 (Sept 1957). Rosa looks very young on this cover posing outside in that blue polka dot bikini, which looks pained on after the photo was taken! So maybe in the actual photo she was naked? Anyone know or have the original to prove or disprove my theory?
Dawn Grayson looking rather sexy with her hair up on the cover of Beautiful Britons No.178. I’ve seen several shots of Dawn in this underwear and wearing her hair like that, but for some reason I like this painted cover version better. A great smile as she leans against the side of the armchair as well.
Dawn Grayson sat on the sofa looking very elegant and sexy wearing just a smile, a pair of nylons and high heels! From my own collection of Dawn originals and I have several of her from this set and a few others in different outfits but the same sofa and Bamboo wallpaper! I love this particular shot as although she’s naked, her pose and hand placement mean you don’t see that much flesh, but what you do see is beautiful presented 🙂
Jane Paul flashing a stocking clad leg, as she poses out and about from an original negative in my collection. This shot probably appeared in one of the ToCo publications such as Spick & Span or Beautiful Britons, but I have no idea which one or which edition? Not my normal type of shot, as she has her clothes on, but Jane did also go on to pose for Harrison Marks wearing a lot less than this! Still a wonderfully crisp clear shot of Jane and she did have a great set of pins on her, that look even better in a set of nylons 🙂
The very sexy Eve Eden (Rosa Domaille) taken by Ed Alexander. This comes from a set of 35mm negatives owned by Kevin, who has kindly sent over several images, including this one. I love this shot of Eve looking over her shoulder in a one piece black bodice looking very alluring as she does. Taken on the front lawn at Ewhurst Manor, as there are other shots of Eve where you see the driveway and front door, such as this one published over on Kevin’s blog.
Two classic vintage models in one shot! June Palmer posing on the roof of a vintage Elva Courier out in the countryside, just outside Biggin Hill. At the time this shot was taken Biggin Hill was in Kent, UK, but now sits in the London Borough of Bromley.
June is actually dressed in these shots in a classic tight jumper and white skirt, so not your normal glamour shot, but maybe a couple of snapshots on the road? It’s hard to tell if they were snapshots as June did model with this and another car for this promo shot, but these look like they just stopped at a crossroads and took a few shots posing on the car. At a guess I’d say the location based on the crossroads sign was just off the B2024 near Tatsfield, as one of the signs points towards the local church.
Thanks to John W for these fabulous shots of June and the Elva Courier, not your normal June shots, but still some great memorabilia from back in the 60’s.
A flash of thigh from Dawn Grayson as she reveals her fancy stockings and slip below her dress! Taken around 1966, similar shots to this one appeared in Spick No.147 (February 1966) but I’m not sure if this actual shot was published? I must admit that in my extensive Dawn collection the biggest gap I have of her is in her Spick & Span, Beautiful Britons shots and appearances.
I’d love to get hold of good quality copies of her Toco appearances or the original images and in particular a set of her posing in the bath in striped top and stockings. It’s on the top of my want list and isn’t even of Dawn nude 🙂
A beautiful shot of Ann Walker laying on the bed highlighted by the light from a window. Sometimes it’s not always about the nudity (OK, most of the time it is!) rather than the tease or anticipation of what is to come. This is one of those shots that falls into that category, where we see Ann’s bosom and cleavage straining in her bra, almost ready to burst free. You can just imagine it and what is to come!
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
A close up shot of June Palmer from the late 1960’s that seems to be more of an outtake as it seems to be slightly out of focus, but it still works! It even looks like June is holding the camera above and taking the shot herself, very much like the modern day ‘selfie’ everyone now takes. What it does focus on though is those magnificent mounds of pleasure at he bottom of the shot, the stuff of dreams!
Thanks to John W for this shot of June from his collection.
