Thelma a Deceiving Look! (Original)

Another restored print from the Oxxbridge collection, but this time a Harrison Marks shot of Thelma laying on the leopardskin rug! This shot appears to have been taken in the late 1950’s as similar sgots with the same rug appear in both Kamera No.4 (1957) and Kamera No.11 (1958), the later featuring Thelma in colour on the cover and centre pages. Shots that appeared in Kamera and some that weren’t were also mass printed and sold as individual prints and postcards and sold (probably under the counter in plain brown paper bags!) to the discerning collector.

Thelma is one of those stunning beauties that has a certain Latin look to her, but was probably born and raised in the UK, similar to Julie (Shearing), as looks can deceive!

Nancy Roberts – Naked & Happy! (Original)

I’m currently going through a huge collection of early vintage glamour images and helping Oxxbridge Galleries to identify the models in them. As part of that deal they are kindly providing high resolution scans of some of the prints I’m interested in to share on this site. One small set of 8 images I helped identify was that of Nancy Roberts and the above shot is restored from one of those prints. In most of the shots Nancy is posing naked with a big smile of her face, a combination you don’t often see (Well the big smile anyway!), but regardless of the smile Nancy looks as stunning as ever and in this set she also seems to be wearing a huge set of bangles.

I also had contact from a new member today who remembers seeing Nancy in magazines and on TV back in his youth and wondered if I had any images of her? I sure do as you can see 🙂

Teresa Seymour (1950’s)

A rare shot from a restored 10 by 8 print of Teresa Seymour, whom posed for Harrison Marks in the mid-fifties and only featured on early postcard sets and two photos of her were published in Kamera No.1 (1957). I’m not sure if this was taken by GHM, but a great close up shot of Teresa’s best assets! Incidentally one of the two shots of Teresa published in Kamera No.1 has her sat naked drinking from a cup and saucer, well why not! Thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries for allowing me to post a selection of their vast archive of original images.

Pat Davis – A Perfect Pair! (Original)

A younger looking Pat Davis from a scan of an original print, which looks to have been taken by Harrison Marks? Regardless of who took it a fantastic shot of Pat and her huge areola! Thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries for allowing me to post a selection of their vast archive of original images.

Who Shoots First? (Original)

Another unknown 1960’s model sent over by John from Oxxbridge Galleries from a scan of an original print. This one shows a model in black panties, a pair of small tits and guns to match! Not quite sure why the guns, but it did make me come up with all types of suggestive titles, such as, who will unload first, give me both barrels and many more about loaded weapons, but I settled for the title above 🙂

Oxxbridge Galleries

It’s always good too make new contacts with similar interests, but then who doesn’t like looking at naked women from the past? So it was great to receive contact from John at Oxxbridge Galleries in New York. John is the owner of a New York City based gallery that specializes in nude photography and presently they have a project under way where they are trying to identify a large number of vintage nude model photos from the 1950’s-1960’s. They use to have someone who did this for them, but he is getting on in his years and his health no longer allows him to do this. So they contacted me via the site, as long time admirers and wondered if I knew of anyone who would be interested in such a position. I said I would post the details of the position (below) to see if anyone that uses my site would be interested.

John also runs a large eBay site, selling a large selection of Vintage erotica, which you can find a link to here, but it is based on, so you may not get to see all the great images, as they seem to block some adult content if you access the site outside of the US!

Not only that, but John sent me some great vintage images that I can share on the site as well, such as the one above. Not my normal subject area, but who could resist an unknown model with a fantastic body and I just love the padded fireplace in the background! I have others from John to share and look forward to seeing more over time, but it’s always good to make new contacts with shared interests, so thanks John for the images and making contact 🙂
