An Impressive Bush From Carla!

These 2 shots are from restored 35mm slides, that were again originally colour but so badly faded I converted them to black and white. Both shots are of a model named ‘Carla’ on the slides, but I have no doubt that this is also Pat Ebden showing us a lot more than usually seen with her! A sneak peak of her in the top shot, then full on bush in the bottom shot although a little blurry! 

To validate my reasoning that it is Pat Ebden, look at this shot of Pat & Tina Madison, same bed but different background and looking at Pat I would say taken at roughly the same time? I prefer the top shot and pose, just showing us a glimpse of something we shouldn’t see 🙂

Jane Matthews

Two restored 35mm slides of Jane Matthews from the early 1960’s. The originals were colour but the slides had degraded so much all that was left was the magenta colour and despite best efforts no other colour could be restored, so decided to convert them to black and white. At a guess I’d say these were late 1950’s or early 1960’s and taken by Bob Robson, as they match these two shots of June Palmer

Cleo Simmons – One You Wouldn’t Throw Back! (Original)

Let’s start the day with another original scan, again from Kevin over on Pinupmemories.  This time we have Cleo Simmons posing in a cave sitting seductively on a lobster pot surrounded by fishing nets! That’s one cave you wouldn’t mind entering and if you caught Cleo you’d keep her for sure!

Thanks Kevin another great scan!

Paula King The Redhead! (1965)

Three restored shots of Paula King wearing an auburn wig and purple high heels posing in front of a very dodgy old armchair. Restored from 35mm slides and dated 13th November 1965 and the middle shot almost shows us a bit more than normal of Ms King! 

Terry Peters – A Bit More on View!

A restored 35mm slide of Terry Peters in a blonde wig and showing us a bit more of herself beneath the floral suspender belt. Potentially taken at Ewhurst Manor and the slide is dated 21st January 1961.

June on Glass – Behind The Scenes (Original)

As you will have seen in this post, John recently sent me a set of scans of June taken from glass photographic plates and that was the first image I had restored and published from the set. This post now gives you some more details of the fantastic set of images that John sent me, plus some information behind the set. John purchased two sets of photographic glass plates of June from a seller on eBay and they were sent in the original box with a description of each plate written on the box.

As you can see there are details about the model (June), the date of the shoot and then the glass plates listed with a description of the pose. The first interesting point is June’s apparent age on the box, showing her as 21 years old in 1960, which according to her date of birth isn’t quite right! If these were taken on 20th August 1960, she would actually have been 20 not 21, so was this a mistake or did she have to be 21 to have the photo’s taken, so a little white lie?

Also included in the box was a close up print of June wearing a necklace with the  image ‘marked up’ in red. So one assumes that this was the intended crop of the shot for printing or publication? I’ve included a scan of the ‘mark-up’ as well with some scratches removed, but otherwise left as printed.

I’ve included the original scan of this glass plate from John, which is No.1 on the box – Portrait (Half) with necklace. Again I’ve restored the image from the original glass scan, as it was very dark.

Finally I then restored and cropped the image as it was intended in the ‘mark-up’ for publication, which was the shot in my first post here

This is the first box of 16 glass plates from John and I have another set of 16 to edit and publish as well, so will do those soon. Another funny coincidence to this set, was that prior to John sending the scans through to me a few weeks before Minimunster had sent me some scans of 6 contact sheets she had of June. When I saw John’s scans I knew they looked familiar and looking back found the contact sheets, which on checking are all prints from John’s glass plates and all marked up with the intended crop for publication. I have small copies fo the contact sheets, but have asked Mini for larger scans so I can add them to this collection of shots for completeness.
