Sonia Mitchell better known as Terry Graham posing on a beach for Terry Sparks. The beach in question was down in Bournemouth and the date according to Terry was May 1969. I published a small set of these shots a while back that Terry sent over from an old SVHS tape, but now I have a set of 11 contact sheets with over 130 shots of Sonia at various locations around Bournemouth and some at the flat in Notting Hill and all fabulous quality such as this shot.
Looking at this shot of Sonia kneeling topless like that on the beach I long for some warmer days, roll on the summer I say!
Random Friday afternoon post in the shapely form of 1980’s porn star Anna Ventura.
A completely natural beauty, this dark-haired, pouty-lipped, full-breasted, lush-bodied vixen from came from New York and was around for only a short time. However, as quickly as her star rose it disappeared, with Anna apparently leaving the adult-film business to marry and raise a family at the end of the 80’s. A stunning original shot of her posing on all fours on the bed showing off those exquisite curves and body that gained her such a wonderful reputation. One of several original 35mm shots of Anna from this set thanks to Kevin and his never ending archive 🙂
The beautiful 1970’s US model Joni North photographed by Howard Roark. A wonderful smile and a wonderful side shot of her pendulous boob and this comes from a small set of contact sheets in my collection featuring 10 sheets and 68 images of Joni in various poses. As with most 1970’s glamour shots she goes on to show her full slender figure in much more provocative poses, all worthy of posting here in due course 🙂
Nicky Stevens posing for Harrison Marks from an original negative taken in 1966. You can’t beat a naked woman on all fours on a Cornwall cliff top edge, but she does look a little close to the edge for my liking! A wonderful kneeling view of Nicky with the equally stunning Cornwall coastline in the background. Taken on location in 66 and part of the team that stayed down near Bedruthan from 14th May for two weeks and Nicky looks like she was having a good time despite the precarious position!
Alison Wills on the cover of Mayfair Vol.16 No.11 (Nov 1981). I will always have an affinity to Mayfair, as it was one of my first introductions into glamour/men’s magazines as a young adult. This cover along with a few others was one of my favourites and always manages to get a reaction! There’s nothing particularly risque about the cover, other than maybe the way Alison is posing, but it does it for me!
The shots of Alison within the magazine are equally as good and reveal far more of what’s beneath that white leotard than the cover, but sometimes less is more and makes the mind work 🙂 Incidentally Alison’s very young almost school girl like look helped her progress her career as a model in the 1980’s. She went on to appear in several other magazine’s and did a lot more explicit stuff in magazines with titles like Sweet Little 16 and so on, which I don’t think I need to explain further!
I have other very vivid memories of Mayfair including a young Linda Lusardi and a severe crush on Rosemary England, or least some very nice bits of her. All of which have probably helped drive and develop my tastes as I got older, but I always seem to revert back to my Mayfair days!
