A beautiful shot of until now an unknown beauty taken by Harrison Marks, but now identified as British model Jane Steadman.
This shot was taken in front of the large willow tree on the front lawn at Ewhurst Manor and actually looks as though Jane is balancing on tiptoes like a ballerina. If you look closely though she is actually in mid air or mid jump when the shot was taken, which shows how good GHM was at his craft. To capture someone jumping mid air like that and to get the shot focused manually as it would have been back then is truly remarkable. That’s not to say it didn’t take multiple attempts, but compared to today where you can just keep shooting with instant results this is a superb shot of Jane. Jane also makes the shot work, not only with her slender body, small perky tits and fine bush, but also the perfect mid air pose 🙂
A big thank you must go to Paul from Firebird who’s been sending me multiple model lists and negative strips he’s acquired. Many of which have now helped me identify several more GHM and British models from the 1960’s including Jane.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted from one of my favourite magazines, so time for some Mayfair magazine deliciousness! This time it’s Lorraine Bishop by John Allum from Mayfair Vol.14 No.4 (April 1979) and her beautiful body and thick lush bush. She appeared in all her glory in 10 images across 6 pages of this edition and members can see all 6 full pages, plus close-ups of all 10 shots. Oh for the memories of Mayfair in the 70’s and the big full on bushes like Lorraine’s, not everyone’s cup of tea but it sure brings back some vivid memories from my teen years!
Two shots of the gorgeous April Dawson from the pages of Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.35 (1969) showing off her slender figure. Interestingly if you believe the little introduction she’s originally from Southend on Sea, married and devotes her time to dog breeding when she’s not modelling nude for the likes of Harrison Marks and others. The pink hair clip in the colour shot also appears in the 4 colour slides I have of her here, but with different earrings.
Jenny Lane on the cover of Relax magazine Vol.2 No.7 flashing a bit of leg and stocking! Jenny looks quite attractive in this shot and love the very 1960’s psychedelic dress she’s wearing, I only have the cover so not sure if the dress comes off on the inside pages 😉
A new shot of June Palmer sent over by John W from his collection of original negatives. Taken in the studio in the 1960’s it’s a classic shot and pose from June and with her clothes on, but still showing off her figure perfectly in that one piece black swimsuit. Stunning and elegant from June as she leans against the black stool and I have a few more from this set to come!
Thanks as always to John for sending over his great shots of June plus a few new films and better quality copies of some June films as well. I’ll get round to updating the films shortly and let everyone know once done 🙂
I always like it when something slightly different comes my way, especially if it includes one of my favourite models such as Dawn Grayson. This is an original copy of a 10 x 8 promo sheet from Kamera Cine Films advertising the first Harrison Marks glamour film featuring Dawn Grayson in ‘Key Strip’. Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records who sent this and another promo sheet over and obviously sent to past customers as this was folded over and in it’s original envelope.
A great bit of vintage memorabilia from Harrison Marks, just a shame I don’t have the film to accompany it as it’s missing from my list of Dawn films 🙁
Another page from Nylon Flash No.19 of Sylvia Bayo and friend stripping out of their underwear. The contrast of Sylvia in white panties against the other model in black panties works perfectly. The opposing underwear colours and skin tones highlight the assets of each other throughout and here you can see the perfect example of black and white contrast, with Sylvia showing off her friends round white bum with black panties pulled down.
I now have a complete edited version of Nylon Flash No.19, with the full magazine including a full 48 pages of Sylvia and friend stripping out of their underwear and members can see the full magazine here.
The fabulous figure of Terry Graham as she poses kneeling on a sheepskin rug in front of a fireplace. This comes from a set of original negatives, which I now have 12 images from and those I’ve published so far from the set can be seen here. This is a stunning shot and the quality of it is so good it could have been taken today rather than over 50 years ago!
