Rosalie Peters – Bobble Hat & Boots! (1967)

Rosalie Peters wearing just a bobble hat, boots and gloves from Kamera No.79 P28 (1967). I couldn’t resist scanning and posting this from my new collection of Kamera magazines, as the theme seemed quite appropriate on the run up to Xmas.

A beautifully posed shot of Rosalie, but I could never understand the need for the long blonde wig? Rosalie also appears on the cover of Kamera No.79 along with 15 other pages, including two colour shots in the centre pages. All are snow themed or taken on the Winter/Festive set by Harrison Marks, so one does wonder if this was the December edition from 1967?

P is for Paul (Xmas Calendar)

P is for Paul, as in Jane Paul posing for Harrison Marks in one of the bedrooms at his flat. A superb portrait of one of the lesser known or used GHM models, although Jane did also pose in several ToCo publications such as Spick & Span. More from Jane in the above set to come anon

Sophia Dawn – From Rags to Riches!

A restored 35mm colour slide from my own collection of the always glamorous Sophia Dawn. Although it looks in this shot that she’s fallen on hard times as the blouse she is nearly wearing has seen better days and is falling apart to reveal a glimpse of tanned tits and nipple below it! I have several 35mm slide collections of Sophia, but this one of her with the ripped blouse and red background is on it’s own, so I have no idea who took it or if there are more? It’s too good not to share as the quality is excellent.

Dawn Grayson – A Real Bench Warmer! (Original)

A superb black and white image of Dawn Grayson posing on a white wrought iron bench on the lawn at Ewhurst Manor from the original negative. Taken by Harrison Marks in the early 1960’s this shot along with several others appeared in Solo No.43 (1964) dedicated to Dawn. This particular pouting shot appeared on page 41 and the close up really shows off her smouldering pouty look as she stares directly at the camera. There are also shots of Dawn and GHM himself posing on this bench, along with Dawn posing alongside another model named as Lisa Hamilton, of which I have several of the negatives as well.

One advantage of having the original negative is you can scan in much closer to see the details, that the print in the original publication doesn’t afford you. The original medium format negative, which is 6cm by 6cm square also allows you to see much more of Ewhurst, including the lawn, gardens and front entrance than these cropped version show, but who wants to see the background when you have a nude Dawn Grayson to look at!

Alison Wills – Mayfair Vol.16 No.11 (Nov 1981)

I published the cover of Mayfair Vol.16 No.11 featuring Alison before, but promised to post the rest of the article featuring much more of her, so here it is! And as you can see, she reveals much more than on the cover, but not as much as in some of her other adventures 🙂

 


Maureen Frawley – A Tight Fit! (Original)

Maureen Frawley from a restored 10 x 8 silver gelatin photo sent over by Scott. To say that corset is squeezing things in a bit would be an understatement and I could never see the appeal of such a device that constricts things so much! Yes, they have a certain sexy appeal to them visually, but they must have been so uncomfortable to wear and all to have a slim waist! If you’ve got it, flaunt it I say as there’s nothing wrong with a few curves!

I’d never seen many shots of Maureen until this one and then it reminded me I’d seen her in this outfit before. Racking my brains I realised it was as part of the trio model index cards I published a while back and that she appears there under the name Ashley Deane with the vital statistics of 37-23-37 and 5′ 5″ tall.

Danielle’s Bushy Bedroom View! (Original)

Danielle Denese posing sat on the bed giving us a cracking view of her body and that glorious full bush, just a shame she has that foot in the way! From the same set as this shot, but this time she’s moved to the comfort of the bedroom 🙂

 

Puppy Love & Pigtails! (Original)

A colour shot of an unknown model kneeling on the bed naked with her hair in pigtails by Harrison Marks and one from my own collection. I’ve posted a shot of this model before, but seeing a colour version adds to the slightly risqué and arousing part of this shot, as the model has a young puppy fat sort of look to her body. As I said before I’m sure it was all legal, but there is just something about the curve of her stomach and pigtails that make her look rather young!

I don’t think I’ve added her to the unknown model list yet, but as I have several shots of her now I’ll add her to growing list.

Jackie Salt – Solo No.23 Cover (1961)

Jackie Salt on the cover of Solo No.23 (1961) dedicated to images of her taken by Harrison Marks. Jackie appeared in both Kamera and other GHM publications during the early 1960’s, including one of the starring roles in the film ‘Naked as Nature Intended’, but I can’t say she was one of my favourite GHM models!

Compared to other models she had a very slim frame and very small perky boobs, which is probably why I shy away from her images, as I am much more of a curves man! Regardless of her figure, she always seemed to be very smiley in all her images and the film 🙂

Alison Wills – Mayfair Cover (November 1981)

Alison Wills on the cover of Mayfair Vol.16 No.11 (Nov 1981). I will always have an affinity to Mayfair, as it was one of my first introductions into glamour/men’s magazines as a young adult. This cover along with a few others was one of my favourites and always manages to get a reaction! There’s nothing particularly risque about the cover, other than maybe the way Alison is posing, but it does it for me!

The shots of Alison within the magazine are equally as good and reveal far more of what’s beneath that white leotard than the cover, but sometimes less is more and makes the mind work 🙂 Incidentally Alison’s very young almost school girl like look helped her progress her career as a model in the 1980’s. She went on to appear in several other magazine’s and did a lot more explicit stuff in magazines with titles like Sweet Little 16 and so on, which I don’t think I need to explain further!

I have other very vivid memories of Mayfair including a young Linda Lusardi and a severe crush on Rosemary England, or least some very nice bits of her. All of which have probably helped drive and develop my tastes as I got older, but I always seem to revert back to my Mayfair days!
