Nancy Roberts – Sheplegh Sweetheart!

Another from the set of Nancy Roberts 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 recognize the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. A stunning shot of Nancy who seems to appear in many of Bainbridge’s early H&E magazines and several ‘naturist’ films, including the new one in my collection ‘World Without Clothes’.

Lee Southern Striking a Pose! (Original)

Another shot of Lee Southern (Grace Jackson) striking a pose on the lawn at Sheplegh Court naturist club in 1960. Scanned from a glass photographic plate and taken in 1960 when she was apparently 24 and wearing a dodgy blonde wig for some reason?

Nancy Roberts – Sun Kissed on The Steps (1959)

Nancy Roberts 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 Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine. A beautiful shot of a sun kissed Nancy laying on those steps in just a hat 🙂

On The Lawn With Lee Southern

A Cool Southern Breeze! (1967)

Lee Southern (Sothern) cooling off in the sea on the cover of Health & Efficiency (June 1967). Nothing risqué about this cover, but Lee looks sexy and cool at the same time in her blue bikini as she takes a splash in the sea. Taken at a beach close to Sheplegh Court in Devon, which was a popular haunt of editor Leslie Bainbridge.

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.

Lee Southern – A Barrow Load of Fun!

Lee Southern (Sothern) sat posing in a very dodgy old wheelbarrow in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1963. From a set of Lee in and around the grounds of Sheplegh and taken by Leslie Bainbridge on a glass photographic plate.

Lee Southern – Sunhat & Straw! (Original)

Lee Sothern (Southern) or Grace Jackson wearing just a sunhat as she poses with a piece of straw in the grounds of Sheplegh Court. Scanned from a glass photographic plate and taken in 1960 when she was apparently 24!
