Earlier this week I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the members of this site over coffee. John had contacted me saying he had a collection of vintage prints in his collection taken by Leslie Bainbridge and others and would I be interested in seeing them. Well it turns out not only do we live in the same country, but are fairly local to each other, so it seemed too good an opportunity to pass on.
Upon meeting John, not only does he have a fabulous collection of over 200+ original prints from Bainbridge, Harrison Marks and others, but he also shared his collection of photos of his fabulous wife Jane. John and Jane were regular visitors to nudist clubs such as Eureka, North Kent, The White House and Sheplegh Court where they ran into Leslie Bainbridge. Jane was always immaculately shaven which was very uncommon at the time for regular members, as opposed to visiting models who were shaven. Jane was often asked to pose and did so occasionally, such as this shot of her after a swim in the Sheplegh pool.
A stunning shot of Jane and I must say a big thank you to John for not only sharing his vintage print collection with me, but also his shots of Jane and also letting me share her on here as well. I’m currently working through the prints as John has been generous and trusting enough to leave them with me to scan, plus a few more of Jane. So I’m hoping to share a few from his print collection soon and hopefully more of Jane if everyone enjoys and he agrees 🙂
The stunning Angela Jones posing on the beach for Harrison Marks and probably taken around the same time he filmed ‘Naked as Nature Intended’ down on the coast at Bedruthan in 1961. A wonderful shot Of Angela kneeling in the sand and showing off her body and that peach of an arse!
I saw a copy of this divine shot of Margaret Nolan posted over on VEF and just had to share it here! What an absolutely superb shot of her topless reflection in the mirror and the light reflecting in her eyes, stunning!
A ‘Non Blonde’ image of Pamela Green posing in long dark wig and scarf using a towel to hide anything too sensitive. Taken on a beach on the Isles of Scilly in 1958 and produced as part of a Pamar 35mm colour slide set, most of these shots ended up in the Kamera on Location book, but as black and white. The reproduction and restoration of colours on this slide is one of the best I’ve seen and comes from my own collection of Pamar slides.
The pose of Pam here actually makes it look likes she doing some sort of exercise workout, although I’m sure it’s just one of those ‘artistic’ poses Harrison Marks used to make her get into 🙂
What better way to start the week than with a glorious shot of Margaret Nolan doing a spot of nude sunbathing on the front lawn at Ewhurst Manor taken by Harrison Marks. As the weather seems to be turning nice in the UK this week, one can only dream of seeing such bathing beauties on the front lawns near me!
Thanks to Kevin for this superb shot of Margaret 🙂
Valerie Williams from the start of a small set of silver gelatin photo’s from the late 1950’s. They feature her teasing us from behind a towel and revealing that fabulous curvy body and round firm tits that seem to have caught the sun!
The beautiful Pamela Green and Jean Spaul (Sporle) in glorious colour, as those pose for Harrison Marks on the balcony of the flat he shared with Pam in Hampstead. Taken around 1960 this colour shot shows the contrast between the redheaded Jean and her pale skin and the darker tanned form of Pamela. A perfect pose shot of the two and a perfect pose, similar to this shot from the same set.
Thanks to Simon for sending through this scan of this original negative from his Pam archive.
