A beautiful shot of a dusky beauty in front of a bamboo room divider from an original 10 by 8 print from the collection of John f that I recently scanned. The beauty in question seems to be 1960’s UK model Dania Faber (Montez) and not Gay Simmons. I have several prints of her from John plus I realized I had an original 35mm negative of her, but she’s dressed in that one.
A stunning shot of Dania with her small pert tits and slender body and what looks like a smooth pussy and she definitely looks to be of Indian descent. A big Thanks also to Tonal Range for point out it was Dania not Gay 🙂
A wet and wonderful view of Hazel Bradshaw by either Leslie Bainbridge or potentially Murray Wren. Hazel is one of a number of models that posed for and appeared in the pages of H&E, although I have no actual references to magazine numbers in which she appeared. Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970’s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge.
So where I’ve originally credited photo’s to Bainbridge they could well be by Wren instead, as the styles and locations are the same, so who knows! I also have over 200 different shots of Hazel from original contact sheets and prints in various locations both indoors and out. This shot seems to be on the sea edge as she kneels on some rocks showing off her naked body and perky nipples and like most Bainbridge/Wren models was completely shaven down below 🙂
A beautiful shot of Rita by Murray Wren posing on the pool steps at Eureka Naturist Club in the 1970’s. This is another scan of an original print from John’s collection of which there are several shots of Rita.
Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970’s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge. It was whilst searching for Murray I came across The Murray Wren Photo Archive which showcases his work over the years, plus it has many galleries of his work and some of the models that posed for him. That is where I came across similar shots of Rita and was able to identify the location as Eureka, plus several other recognizable models including Vicky Ashley and Sally Dixon.
What a fabulous naturist shot of Rita this is showing of her fabulous figure and smooth mound, perfect and thanks again to John for sharing his collection!
Earlier this week I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the members of this site over coffee. John had contacted me saying he had a collection of vintage prints in his collection taken by Leslie Bainbridge and others and would I be interested in seeing them. Well it turns out not only do we live in the same country, but are fairly local to each other, so it seemed too good an opportunity to pass on.
Upon meeting John, not only does he have a fabulous collection of over 200+ original prints from Bainbridge, Harrison Marks and others, but he also shared his collection of photos of his fabulous wife Jane. John and Jane were regular visitors to nudist clubs such as Eureka, North Kent, The White House and Sheplegh Court where they ran into Leslie Bainbridge. Jane was always immaculately shaven which was very uncommon at the time for regular members, as opposed to visiting models who were shaven. Jane was often asked to pose and did so occasionally, such as this shot of her after a swim in the Sheplegh pool.
A stunning shot of Jane and I must say a big thank you to John for not only sharing his vintage print collection with me, but also his shots of Jane and also letting me share her on here as well. I’m currently working through the prints as John has been generous and trusting enough to leave them with me to scan, plus a few more of Jane. So I’m hoping to share a few from his print collection soon and hopefully more of Jane if everyone enjoys and he agrees 🙂
Merle Henry down on the beach for a spot of nude sunbathing and posing for Harrison Marks. This one is for all the shaven/depilation fans out there after my question on this post, where it seems the reaction was split 50/50 down the middle on Hair or Bare!
Here we see a full frontal of Merle showing off her perfectly smooth lower region and censored versions of similar shots of Merle appeared in Kamera No.41 and Solo (1962). This beautiful view of the beach and Merle for all to see appeared in Kamera No.46 P33 (1962)!
A shot of Paula Page on the Loft set by Harrison Marks, highlighting her fabulous figure and huge tits with the clever use of light and shadow. Her boobs were so big they cast rather a big shadow 🙂
Update: I’ve replace the original image that was a scan from ‘Just Paula Page’ to include an original scan from the negative sent to me by Kevin.
Gloria Lomax (Donna Ambrose) showing all in this restored colour 35mm slide by Harrison Marks (May 1964). Another uncensored shot giving us a glimpse of Gloria below and the fact that although she shaved. Although she didn’t completely, so a ‘French Wax’ or landing strip, that is so popular today and probably rare in the 60’s as they usually seemed to have nothing or everything.
Not a new shot of June from the 1960’s, I just found a better quality one than the original I had. What is always interesting about these shots from the 60’s is seeing an uncensored or un-retouched image such as this. I’m so used to seeing June’s nether region retouched in early shots, when I see an unedited version I always have to check if it’s real! Not is her nether region real, we all know how exquisite that is, but real as in has someone edited in the bits!
Not much of a reference point to go on with regards to location or date, but at a guess I’d go with Cornwall and around the same time as ‘She Walks in Beauty’, so 1964 and by GHM of course!
