Nancy Roberts – Fun In The Hay (1959)

A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts laying in the hay at Sheplegh Court. Taken on a glass plate by Leslie Bainbridge in September 1959 Nancy looks fabulous as she lays in the hay basking in the sun.

Lee Southern – Sunhat & Straw! (Original)

Lee Sothern (Southern) or Grace Jackson wearing just a sunhat as she poses with a piece of straw in the grounds of Sheplegh Court. Scanned from a glass photographic plate and taken in 1960 when she was apparently 24!

A Kneeling Nancy (1959)

Nancy Roberts kneeling on the steps of a building in the grounds of Sheplegh Court, Devon from a scan of a photographic glass plate. Another from the set of Nancy in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old and taken by Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated.

Margaret Stewart’s Youthful Spring! (1960’s)

Three shots of UK model, Margaret Stewart posing outdoors at one with nature, with all three shots taken by Leslie Bainbridge on photographic glass plates. Again, it is unknown where these shots were published, if indeed they were, but more than likely due to the style of them, shot for the likes of Health & Efficiency (H&E). Unknown location, but I do like the top shot of her posing in the fountain and her body being sprayed with the water 🙂

Nancy Roberts – A Walk on The Wild Side!

OK, more like a crawl, but I love this shot of Nancy Roberts kneeling on all fours in the grass, especially the look on her face! A very ‘You want it? Come and get it’ look as she poses like that.

Another from the set of Nancy taken in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old! Looking at the details on the box of these glass plates I now recognise the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. Who also took a set of shots I’ve been posting of Lee Southern as well.
