Jean Sporle – Reclined Exposure! (Original)

It must be my week for nice surprises, as I was contacted last night by none other than the fabulous Jean Sporle, who came across my site and contacted me. Jean is now 83 and blessed with good health and still going strong, which is fantastic to hear and still does the odd bit of fashion modeling, Wow!

Jean like myself is also keen on knowing if some of the great models back then are still around, hence looking through the site. I’ve passed on the models I know are still around and it’s great to hear that Jean is going strong and loving the times she had back with Harrison Marks and Pamela Green.

Above is a stunning shot of Jean reclining nude on a sofa and highlighted by the natural light from a window above. This is from a restored Pamar slide and taken back in the late 50’s by Harrison Marks at his flat he shared with Pam in Hampstead. A stunning shot of a fabulous lady and so glad she made contact 🙂

June Palmer – A Thing of Beauty! (Original)

An absolute belter of a shot of the fabulous June Palmer from an original 35mm colour slide I recently purchased from eBay. A wonderful studio portrait shot of a young June in the prime of her modelling career leaning forward to give us a glimpse of her fine cleavage, perfection.  I say this every time I come across another superb shot of June, but this has to up there as one of my favourite non-nude portrait shots of June, well at least until the next one comes along 🙂

Thanks must go to member Tonal Range who alerted me to this and a load of other 35mm glamour slides on sale on eBay. I managed to snaffle 13 slides of June, along with several of Jayne Tracy and Elizabeth Flynn and all are in superb condition. All of them including this one needed little restoration or colour correction, apart from the odd minor dirt mark removed and they scanned as seen above. The only downside is that they weren’t in the original card slide holders, but replacement plastic ones, but hey it’s the image that counts. Non were named as I’m sure if they had been identified as June Palmer they would have gone, but fortunately for me they hadn’t and I can spot June a mile off 🙂

Marie Deveraux – Uncensored Beauty (Original)

An absolutely stunning shot of Marie Deveraux in the studio by Harrison Marks and one that shows off her uncensored beauty at it’s best! Such wonderful curves and a perfectly smooth mound, which would have helped the censors hide such a view for publication, shame!

Beautiful Brenda! (Original)

Another shot of the highlighted beauty and figure of Brenda Graham by Harrison Marks. A stunning pose that captures her body perfectly in the light, enhanced by the perfect platinum blonde hair and black background. From the same set as this shot, and was published in Kamera No.44 P43 (1961), but a much tighter crop than my version from the negative.

Sue Yesterly – Plenty on Offer! (Original)

A great shot of 1960’s UK model Sue Yesterly out and about and showing everything off! I have several images of Sue and they all show off her fabulous figure, those beautiful hanging breasts and some show off that lush thick bush, such as this one. Another model I hadn’t come across until recently, then found several of her in my collection and she sure had plenty to offer in the bush department 🙂

Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge (Original)

A beautiful 10 x 8 original print of Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge. I have literally 100’s of shots of Dawn in my collection and I’m trying to remember if I have any of her that show her so open and exposed? Saying that someone did mention to me that Bainbridge had a way of making the models relax and ‘open up’ for him and it certainly looks like it worked for Dawn.

This is one of my favourite recent shots of Dawn, along with another print of her by Bainbridge. I’m also trying to remember if I’ve ever seen her in the pages of H&E, she appears on various covers and within Girl Illustrated, the other Bainbridge publication, but I’ve only ever seen her on the cover of H&E No.835 (Nov 1970). Does anyone know if she ever appeared within the pages of H&E? Looking at the above shot it could well have appeared in either of the publications, if at all, but surely too good not to publish?

Maria Frost – Boots & Frilly Knickers (Original)

A beautiful shot of Maria Frost posing in grey boots and yellow panties with frills! This comes from a large set of 35mm negatives sent over by Paul from Firebird, including several sets of Maria including this one. I’ve also included the first shot from the set below, where Maria is fully dressed in a very short little yellow dress.

The set is very familiar with the orange sofa and drinks cabinet and I’ve seen several other models posing on this set. In fact looking through the sets that Paul sent over several other models are also posing on this set, so maybe all taken at the same studio or by the same photographer, unfortunately no identification of either yet!

Blonde & Bare! (Original)

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
