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 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 🙂
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 🙂
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!
