Is It Rosemary or Alana? – Mayfair Vol.11 No.9 (1976)

Alana Ford better known as Rosemary England from Mayfair Vol.11 No.9 (Sept 1976). I’m a big fan of Rosemary but up until now have never posted anything on here of her, but a fan recently asked if I had anything, so revisited my collection of her and came up with this from Mayfair of her. It has to be one of my favourite sets published of her and I particular like the last centrefold shot of her as Mayfair’s Girl of The Month. A beautifully shaped woman with a hell of a body and thick lush bush that was so popular in the 1970’s.

Rosemary posed on more than one occasion with Mary Millington and there is an actual legitimate reason for her to be on this blog. She appeared in the color Climax film No.1429 – Arabian Knights (1979) produced by Harrison Marks and it is one of the only films in which she actually does hardcore, with the help of Nikki Stanton ūüôā Incidentally a further link is that an older and larger Annette Johnson also appeared in the film as another of the 7 females in the Harem, although I don’t believe she was involved in the hardcore part of the film.

Nancy Roberts – Fun In The Hay (1959)

A stunning shot of Nancy Roberts laying in the hay at Sheplegh Court. Taken on a glass plate by Leslie Bainbridge in September 1959 Nancy looks fabulous as she lays in the hay basking in the sun.

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.
