Season’s Greetings!

I’d just like to wish all followers and members of the site a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year! I’d also like to thank all of the friends and supporters of the site that have provided feedback and images over the past year. It’s always appreciated and without your continued support the site wouldn’t be half as good as it is. I’m going away over the Christmas period, so things will slow down here, but I hope you all have a good break and I’ll see you all back here for another year of vintage goodies in 2017.

The above Christmas scene is obviously the glorious Dawn Grayson posing on Santa’s sleigh amongst the furs, but still showing off that fabulous figure. The original shot appeared in the Kamera Winter Special P10 and P11 (1966), but this is from the original negative in my collection. We also have Santa (Harrison Marks) and a snowman in the scene, but neither take away the limelight from Dawn and I wish Santa would bring me one of those on his sleigh this year!

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?

Dawn Grayson – Christmas Is That Way! (Original)

Another festive themed shot as Christmas approaches and another scan from one of my original negatives. This one features firm favourite Dawn Grayson on the festive set, including Santa! This shot was taken in 1966 for the Kamera Winter Special and a similar image of Dane pointing off into the distance appears on the cover, but she’s sat rather than stood. This image also doesn’t appear in the actual magazine or appear anywhere else, unless I’ve missed it?

Santa as I’ve mentioned before is supposedly Harrison Marks himself, but not 100% convinced, as who’s taking the photo then?

Nicky Stevens – Kamera Calendar, November 1968

Out of sync with my other 1968 Kamera Calendar posts, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me! The November page of the 1968 Kamera Calendar featuring Nicky Stevens in the snow with nothing more than white boots, hat and hand warmer to protect her from the elements! 
Don’t forget today is the last UK postal day for all your 2nd class post if you want people to get it before Xmas! What a service I provide, nude women, witty banter and public service announcements 🙂

That’s Not The Alps, Terry! (Original)

After commenting yesterday that I was running out of snow shots for the festive season up popped this shot in my inbox from Terry, with the following note:
‘Looking at the site today I see that you say you are running out of snow pictures. I thought you may like the attached shot of me working with a French girl called Marieange, in the snow at Walden Manor. The quality is not great, it’s from a print given to me by Jim Clark (owner of Walden Manor) who took it. This was my first shoot with this girl and I also had a session with her and Rena Brown working together behind closed doors in a Boutique in Camden Town.’
Fantastic candid shot of Terry himself at work, although I’m not sure about the white winter coat and the poor girl must have been frozen like that! I’d love to see some of the Rena Brown shots as have so few of her for the site, but a big thanks to Terry for this great shot and always worth sharing.

Rosalie Peters – Kamera Calendar, February 1968

There is a definitely a theme with the Kamera Calendar for 1968 by Harrison Marks, especially for the winter months, snow! Here we have Rosalie Peters sat sporting a very attractive bobble hat for the February page. I think she could do with some pants on though, as I bet her bum is cold sitting on that snow 🙂

Dawn Grayson – Kamera Calendar, January 1968

Dawn Grayson looks simply stunning in this shot for the January page of the 1968 Kamera Calendar! The eyes, the hair, the look and pose all perfect and what more could you ask for under your Xmas tree on Christmas morning!

Xmas Cracker – Rosalie Peters (3)

I seem to have more images of Rosalie Peters on the festive set by Harrison Marks than any other model apart from Dawn Grayson for some reason!  So a slightly different cracker today, in that it’s a magazine cover for Duke Magazine (February, 1968).  Still obviously taken by GHM, but sold on for use in one of the many Men’s magazines of the time!

U is for Unknown

As in unknown model posing on the festive snow set for Harrison Marks.  I don’t recognise her at all even in that position, another lovely uncensored bush on display for Xmas!  Printed in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1 ‘A Series of Natural Art Studies’, but unsure if it appeared any where else?
