Eve Eden – Model No.1

Eve Eden (Rosa Domaille) on the cover of Model No.1 by Russell Gay. I actually published another version of this image from an original 35mm colour slide here, but either this version is reversed or mine is, but checking mine seems to be the correct way round. It’s always good to post the original and where it was published either on a cover or within a magazine 🙂

Virginia Green – A Hot Bed of Action! (Original)

Another classy model in the shape of Virginia Green but the same bed as this shot earlier this week of Caron Gardiner. That bed obviously saw some use and action, you may even go as far as saying a hotbed of action 🙂 It even has the same bedspread on it! Regardless of the bed Virginia looks as gorgeous and as elegant as ever in just heels and earrings on that bed. Seeing this shot and the other shot makes me believe these may well have been taken by Russell Gay.

Virginia Green – Canes & Curves! (Original)

Virginia Green posing nude between two bamboo canes, but I’m not sure if this shot is by Harrison Marks or Russell Gay as both used Virginia in a setting with bamboo canes? I think it’s GHM because of the use of lighting to get the highlights and shadows across Virginia’s exquisite curves and he used a dark background in some of the bamboo shots with Virginia that are published in Solo No.15, but I could be wrong. A straight from the negative image showing a smooth and uncensored view as well 🙂

Sophia Dawn – Shocking in Stockings! (Original)

Sophia Dawn stripping off her stockings as two shocked cartoon ladies look on in horror. This topless shot comes from an original print taken by Russell Gay in the studio and is a fabulous shot of the beautiful Sophia in white panties and stockings 🙂

Amber No.1 by Russell Gay (1950’s)


The cover of the first edition of Amber by Russell Gay, featuring a model I recognise but unable to name at present? This first edition featured classic models posing in underwear or topless such as Nancy Roberts, Erica and Rochelle Lofting and was published towards the end of the 1950’s or possibly the early 60’s. Classic stuff from Russell Gay and up there as some of my favourite early glamour publications along with QT, Model and Coral.

A new year thanks to Paul from Firebird Records who continues to supply me with copies of these vintage beauties 🙂

Ann Walker – A Window Wonder! (Original)

Ann Walker looking wonderful as she poses by the window topless showing off her fine figure in stockings, suspenders and black panties. A beautifully restore print from the studio of Russell Gay and a great view of Ann, just a shame about the ladder in that stocking, picky I know 🙂

Model No.3 by Russell Gay

The cover of Model No.3 by Russell Gay featuring a stunning overhead view of a model who’s name escapes me at the moment, but I’m sure someone will remind me. A larger format magazine than QT but an underrated magazine in my view as the magazine and models were always worth a peruse!

Full On Frankie! (Original)

Frankie Young posed for many of the key photographers back in the 1960’s, including Russell Gay and Harrison Marks. This seems to be a shot by Russell Gay and is the most open and revealing shot I’ve seen of her to date, as she normally keeps her knickers on or poses in a way to hide what lies below!

Frankie posed for GHM in Kameras No.55 (1963), No.56, in which she appears on the cover and No.58. She is the star of Solo No.37 and further photos from earlier shoots were published in Kameras No.69, 73 & 75, and in Kamera Special No.3. She also appears on eight of the large format pages of Harrison Marks’ prestigious hardback coffee table book, ‘She Walks in Beauty’. There are two glamour movies featuring Frankie: No.47 ‘Frankly Frankie’ & No.51 ‘What the Eye Doesn’t See’. I have a copy of the first film, so must dig it out and publish it 🙂

A stunning open view of Frankie!
