Vera Day – Spick No.10 Cover (1954)

Vera Day adorning the cover of Spick No.10 (Sept 1954) in a very nice red and black bikini. The sub title says ‘Starlet Moving Up’ and she obviously hit her prime in 1962 when she posed for Harrison Marks nude! Thanks to Paul from Firebird London for this great copy.

Gillian Hanna – The Perfect Glass Holder! (Original)


Gillian Hanna or as she is better known Jennifer Eccles showing us her great glass holders, although the wine may get a little warm, as I know I would between those! This original shot was sent to me by the photographer himself, Terry Sparks and as many of you would know Terry has kindly been sending me some of his work along with some fantastic stories.

This shot also comes with a little story attached and Terry comments that  ‘In September of 1977 I photographed a girl that I knew as Gillian Hanna. She was a bit of a nutcase, heavily into porn both stills and film. I only worked with her the once, as she was not really right for the markets I was shooting for at the time.

Well we all know the type of material that Gillian/Jennifer went on to do in the 1970’s and onwards, but what a fantastic find as I’ve not seen this shot of her before. Thanks to Terry for sharing his image and story, unfortunately he only has the one shot of her remaining.

A Kneeling Nancy (1959)

Nancy Roberts kneeling on the steps of a building in the grounds of Sheplegh Court, Devon from a scan of a photographic glass plate. Another from the set of Nancy in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old and taken by Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated.

June’s Off The Shoulder Look! (Original)

A third shot of June in front of a black velvet background with her long white negligee hanging down around her arms, exposing her perfect tits.  This was from a Kodachrome Transparency dated September, 1963 and comes from a set of images, some of which I’ve already posted here

Caron’s Kinky Outlook! (1962)

Caron Gardner from a restored 35mm slide dated September 1962, where she manages to look both sophisticated with a hint of kinky all at the same time! There’s so much going on in this view from the elegance of the stockings and earrings Caron is wearing, contrasted by the cut-out bra squeezing her tits up and out, plus the corset cover by the sheer panties! Plenty to keep a red blooded male busy!

Nancy Roberts – A Walk on The Wild Side!

OK, more like a crawl, but I love this shot of Nancy Roberts kneeling on all fours in the grass, especially the look on her face! A very ‘You want it? Come and get it’ look as she poses like that.

Another from the set of Nancy taken in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old! Looking at the details on the box of these glass plates I now recognise the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. Who also took a set of shots I’ve been posting of Lee Southern as well.

June Palmer – A Touch of Class, Part 2! (Original)

The second shot from this set of slides that I’ve published, but this one comes from my own collection of JP slides and is a closer cropped shot than the first one posted here. Another stunning pose from June sat in front of a black velvet background with her long white negligee hanging down around her arms, exposing her perfect tits. This was from a Kodachrome Transparency and was slide No.11 dated September, 1963

June Palmer – A Touch of Class! (Original)

A stunning pose from June as she stands in front of a black velvet background with her long white negligee hanging down around her arms, exposing her perfect body.  Thanks to John for this image of June showing us all a touch of class in the way she posed.

Nancy Roberts – A Sunny Outlook! (1959)

A second stunning shot of Nancy Roberts posing on a beach with only a sun hat and beach towel for shade. It comes from a photographic glass plate and was taken in September, 1959 at the beach near Sheplegh Court, Devon. What a body on view, including a peak of her uncensored bits. I’ve also realized that this set of shots of Nancy come from the Michael Winner film ‘Some Like It Cool’ (1962) and although she is never credited in the film, Nancy appears on several posters and lobby cards advertising the film. The shots in the posters seem to be at this location and in similar positions.

Nancy Roberts – Just a Sun Hat For Shade! (1959)

I try to keep the posts and images on this site relevant to the area I’m interested in around Harrison Marks, Russell Gay and their publications, but sometimes I get sent or find shots that push those boundaries. I try and find links between the models and photographers or locations, but sometimes a shot or model doesn’t fall into those categories, but is too good not to post. I also have a number of favourite 1970’s models that don’t meet the same criteria and in the past I have posted shots of them on my other blog over on ‘Daysgonebyporn‘, but keeping several sites going takes time and effort of which I’m finding I have less and less.

Therefore I’m going to push the boundaries of what I post on this site (which is by far the most popular) and if you indulge me post a few none related posts and models. The vast majority will still be related to the main topic on the site, but you can expect the odd unrelated model or image going forward, for which I make no apology 🙂 Most of the shots will still be originals and of the quality you would expect, just more variety.

A good example is the shot above. A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts posing on a beach with only a sun hat for shade. It comes from a photographic glass plate and was taken in September, 1959 at the beach near Sheplegh Court, Devon and the accompanying notes put Nancy at 20 years old in the shot. What a body and what a smile and thankfully I have several others of Nancy at the beach to share along with this 🙂

Enjoy the very enjoyable diversion and let me know what you think about expanding the scope of the site a little?
