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 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?
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?

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 🙂
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.
