A stunning view of an unknown beauty taken by Leslie Bainbridge and from the collection of member John’s original prints. A perfect pose in the sun of this unknown blonde bare beauty with a great figure and tan lines highlighting the white bits and smooth pussy. No idea who she is and unless anyone else can identify her she’s down in the Leslie Bainbridge list as Unknown Model No.5
A wet and wonderful view of Hazel Bradshaw by either Leslie Bainbridge or potentially Murray Wren. Hazel is one of a number of models that posed for and appeared in the pages of H&E, although I have no actual references to magazine numbers in which she appeared. Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970’s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge.
So where I’ve originally credited photo’s to Bainbridge they could well be by Wren instead, as the styles and locations are the same, so who knows! I also have over 200 different shots of Hazel from original contact sheets and prints in various locations both indoors and out. This shot seems to be on the sea edge as she kneels on some rocks showing off her naked body and perky nipples and like most Bainbridge/Wren models was completely shaven down below 🙂
A beautiful shot of Rita by Murray Wren posing on the pool steps at Eureka Naturist Club in the 1970’s. This is another scan of an original print from John’s collection of which there are several shots of Rita.
Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970’s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge. It was whilst searching for Murray I came across The Murray Wren Photo Archive which showcases his work over the years, plus it has many galleries of his work and some of the models that posed for him. That is where I came across similar shots of Rita and was able to identify the location as Eureka, plus several other recognizable models including Vicky Ashley and Sally Dixon.
What a fabulous naturist shot of Rita this is showing of her fabulous figure and smooth mound, perfect and thanks again to John for sharing his collection!
Earlier this week I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the members of this site over coffee. John had contacted me saying he had a collection of vintage prints in his collection taken by Leslie Bainbridge and others and would I be interested in seeing them. Well it turns out not only do we live in the same country, but are fairly local to each other, so it seemed too good an opportunity to pass on.
Upon meeting John, not only does he have a fabulous collection of over 200+ original prints from Bainbridge, Harrison Marks and others, but he also shared his collection of photos of his fabulous wife Jane. John and Jane were regular visitors to nudist clubs such as Eureka, North Kent, The White House and Sheplegh Court where they ran into Leslie Bainbridge. Jane was always immaculately shaven which was very uncommon at the time for regular members, as opposed to visiting models who were shaven. Jane was often asked to pose and did so occasionally, such as this shot of her after a swim in the Sheplegh pool.
A stunning shot of Jane and I must say a big thank you to John for not only sharing his vintage print collection with me, but also his shots of Jane and also letting me share her on here as well. I’m currently working through the prints as John has been generous and trusting enough to leave them with me to scan, plus a few more of Jane. So I’m hoping to share a few from his print collection soon and hopefully more of Jane if everyone enjoys and he agrees 🙂
An scrumptious image of Sylvana Manto (Madelaine Bannister) kneeling on the bed from a restored silver gelatin photo. Here you get to see a rear view of Sylvana, including her well rounded bottom. Not only that but you get a great view of her toes through those stockings for all the toe and feet fetish people out there 🙂
