Gisa by Paul Pantha (1967)

A perky blonde named Gisa taken by Paul Pantha on location at some house in January 1967 from a set of contact sheets sent over by Kevin. This is another case of different names for different people, in this case both the model and the photographer.

The photographer Paul Panta is none other than Terry Sparks and Gisa is more well known as UK model Susan Shaw, with these shots of her being taken early in her career. If you go take a look at her over on VEF she went on to have a long and varied career, including appearances in Parade, Fiesta and Mayfair and plenty of Page 3 type work. She also had a foray into the more explicit and hardcore work as well as posing with James Hunt and appearing on numerous record covers!

Terry also went under the name Paul Pantha as a photographer when he worked for Russell Gay, before later using his own name. I have several other sets of contact sheets by Paul Pantha with more to come, but isn’t it sad that I recognised the photo’s as Terry’s work immediately, which he has since verified.

A beautiful shot of Susan posing on the doorstep in panties and a nice open toweling top, which must have been all the fashion back then as she has matching toweling swimsuit in other shots 🙂

Terry’s Treasures – Nancy Robard (1972)

Nancy Robard taken by Terry Sparks in March 1972 and another from my collection of 10 contact sheets featuring 120 images of Nancy. To say Nancy had a good covering down below would be an understatement, as she’s one of those few natural models that has a thick abundant pussy and just doesn’t stop until it reaches her navel, similar to the likes of Clyda Rosen.

Also another model that decided to disguise herself with a wig and I couldn’t find anything online under the name Nancy Robard, so maybe that’s her real name and she modelled under a different moniker! As you moved into the 70’s tastes sure changed as censorship laws relaxed and more could be shown, things certainly got hairier 🙂

Mrs Merton Never Looked This Good! (Original)

Denise Merton taken by Terry Sparks in November 1971 posing sat on the bed with a familiar floral shawl type thing. Now I say this a lot on this blog as my memory seems to get worse, but I’m sure I’ve seen Denise before somewhere, other than all the images I now have of her! A stunning model with a great figure and long flowing hair I’m sure she appeared in numerous publications, but I just can’t think where?

Another wonderful Terry’s treasure and if you’re wondering about the title, it’s a reference the the UK comedy show called The Mrs Merton Show, which was a mock talk show starring comediene Caroline Aherne as the elderly host Mrs Merton. 

Terry’s Treasures – Jo O’Brien’s Perky Pair (Original)

Another model from the Terry Sparks stable, this time Jo O’Brien taken in August 1978. I have 72 images of Jo from 6 contact sheets, with her posing topless as in this shot, with the odd fuller exposure if you know what I mean! Although Jo only has a small pair on her she did seem to possess larger darker areola with nice rounded button nipples than some of the other models that posed for Terry.

Terry’s Treasures – Maria Edge (1972)

Another treasure from Terry Sparks this time in the shape of bushy babe Maria Edge. This striking shot of Maria was taken by Terry in December 1972 and shows off her slender figure and small tits to perfection, along with that very thick bush synonymous with 1970’s models, not that I’m complaining.

This shot comes from a set of eight contact sheets featuring Maria in different locations and poses, but for some reason her face rather than her body stand out for me as I’m sure I’ve seen her somewhere before? I have no idea where, but probably scanning through a copy of some men’s magazine in the past I’ve registered the face or body and it stuck with me. Anyone recognise her?

Over the last few months I’ve managed to acquire a lot more contact sheets of Terry’s treasures. In fact to date I have over 363 sheets featuring 4700 images of 42 different models photographed by Terry mostly during the 1970’s but some in the late 1960’s. So plenty to keep me going for a while and to share here, which I will do over the coming weeks with new models each day from Terry. Thanks as always to Terry for not only having had the hard task of taking all those photo’s in the 70’s, but for also racking his memory to provide dates and names of the models and putting up with my constant questions 🙂
