Rita by Murray Wren (Original)

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! 

Fran Dorn – Nippletastic! (Original)

After recently posting this shot of Fran Dorn from my collection, Terry Sparks mailed me with this fantastic shot of Fran from his own collection! Although he no longer has a lot of the originals in his archive, he did have this colour shot of Fran posing in the pool. And what a shot it is showing Fran stood in the pool, arms above her head showing off those bullet nipples! Nippletastic as the title says!

Thanks as always to Terry for sharing his shots with us 🙂

Sylvia McFarland – A Sunny Spread! (Original)

Another outdoors shot in water to cool you down or warm you up depending on your point of view! This time a very nice shot of Sylvia McFarland cooling off in the pool and showing off her naked body, huge tits and natural pussy. This comes from my collection of original Sylvia McFarland contact sheets, so plenty more shots of Sylvia naked in the pool to cool you down left 🙂

Lee Southern – Poolside at Spielplatz (1960)

Another shot of Lee Southern (Grace Jackson) sat posing on the pool edge at Spielplatz Naturist Club, from the same set as this shot! Another print from a photographic glass plate taken on 26th May, 1960 of Lee and a stunning shot of her sun kissed figure. It definitely makes you want to cool off in that pool seeing Lee in this shot 🙂

Suzanne Pritchard – Poolside Fun! (Original)


Suzanne Pritchard relaxing nude by the pool in what looks like a set of candid shots of her. I’ve mentioned before in other posts that she had a thick lush bush, but it was very rarely on show and normally discreetly covered by a hand or panties. Well these shots do give us a fairly good view of Suzanne’s superb bush as she lays naked on a sun lounger and plays around on a diving board. My favourite is the shot of her leaning over the edge of the diving board with her big tits squeezed between her arms and the view of her thick pussy between her legs. The last two shots of her bouncing on the board are fun, especially seeing those big tits defy gravity 🙂

Vicky Ashley & Friend – Bathing Beauties

A short haired Vicky Ashley and unknown friend taking a quick nude dip in the pool! Taken by Leslie Bainbridge of Girl Illustrated and H&E fame I’m sure this shot must have appeared in either but not sure? Anyone know the other model on the right, she looks familiar but not ringing any bells?

Lee Southern – Poolside Poses (Originals)

Three more silver gelatin prints of Lee Sothern (Southern) from photographic glass plates. These were again taken poolside at Sheplegh Court down in South Devon in the 1960’s, although in this shoot the pool seems to be empty in these, so maybe a later date than the shot I posted here?

Three great poses by Lee and after a bit of detective work I’ve identified the photographer as  Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustated.

Making a Splash at Spielplatz (1960)

Lee Sothern (Grace Jackson) sat posing on the pool edge at Spielplatz Naturist Club, which sure looks fun and cooling! Another print from a photographic glass plate and another naturist club for Lee to pose at, similar to this shot of her at Sheplegh Court.

Taken on 26th May, 1960 Lee was 24 and a few years younger than the shot at Sheplegh, not that you can tell! It seems that both clubs were very popular with the photographers back then, especially Spielplatz to take models to for photo-shoots, but one wonders if they had to strip off too?
