Presenting Eve Eden

From Dawson Publishing Co. comes the cover of a small format magazine dedicated to Eve Eden, who also appears in tri-colour on the front and back covers. There was a collection of these magazines, all titled ‘Presenting … Model Name’ and all under the guise of being a magazine for artists and photographers. Any excuse to see your favourite model nude!

Thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries for this colourful magazine cover featuring Eve!

Diane Clare – Highlighted Curves (Original)

A stunning shot of Diane Clare from a set of 5 prints sent over by John and the team from Oxxbridge. I’ve not seen this shot of Diane or any of the other shots before, but they are all of her posing in the shadows like this with a black background. They could be by Harrison Marks, but I have no idea, so will have to investigate a bit more. Regardless a superb shot of Diane and her highlighted body!

Sylvana’s Perfectly Placed Ball! (Original)

A restored print from Oxxbridge Galleries of the stunning Sylvana Manto as she poses with a strategically placed beach ball. this seems to be a later shot of Sylvana than some I have posted in the past.

Unknown Beauty in Pearls (1950’s)

A stunning shot of a 1950’s beauty posing in a living room in just her matching pearl earrings and necklace, with just black high heels on. A very classy, but for some reason sexy shot and as you can see there is a theme to today’s posts! Thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries I have a set of 9 prints of this beauty posing in her pearls and it must have been at Christmas as one shot is of her like this next to a Christmas tree!

A very classic 1950’s hairstyle as well, but love her whole look and figure, all enhanced by the pearls and is it me or does she resemble Lucille Ball a little bit?

Update: Thanks to Phil who has potentially identified this model as Geri/Jeri Archer who was a model and actress in the 50’s and 60’s and appeared on The Phil Silvers show (Sgt Bilko). I don’t think we are 100% convinced this is her, more like 50/50, but the nose and stature are similar?

A Lofty View of Rochelle (Original)

Two restored shots from original prints of Rochelle Lofting from the 1950’s. These come from a set of four prints of Rochelle sent over by Oxxbridge Galleries and having an educated guess I’d say these look like Harrison Marks shots, but I’m not 100% certain? These two shots also show her pretty prominent smallpox vaccination scar on her upper arm.

1950’s Balloons & Bathroom (Gallery)

Now this is a different set, but one that when I saw it totally intrigued me! A set of six, but possibly more images of an unknown woman from the 1950’s, posing on a bed with some balloons and then in the bathroom.

These were again sent over by Oxxbridge from original photo prints that I’ve restored, but as I went through them I got curious about the context of them. The woman doesn’t look like a model, more like a wife (wedding ring!) that’s been out to a party, possibly New Year and been talked into posing nude by her husband in the hotel room after returning. Hence to inclusion of the balloons, the semi un-posed feel to the shots and the bathroom shots! What’s with the shot of her sat in the sink, although it has a certain erotic feel to it if I’m honest and the shot that caught my attention. I’m probably totally wrong with my idea behind the shots, but I like it and thought I’d share the shots anyway, as she has a cracking body as well 🙂
