I published a cropped colour version of this shot here, but I also like the fuller version and it works very well when also converted to black and white. A beautiful shot of Dawn Grayson in sheer open top dropping off the shoulders and a pair of high heels. But I also love the pigtails in her hair and the overall look of the shot be it colour or black and white 🙂
After my post yesterday about Leslie Bainbridge I thought it was about time I dug out another shot from this set. The 9th glass photographic plate of June Palmer taken by Leslie Bainbridge in the studio (12th August, 1960).
This shot has June laying against some pillows, one knee raised as she rests an arm on the knee. A beautiful view of June’s young full figure as she looks at the camera and casting a shadow behind her. Unfortunately there is a shadow on the left hand side and in other shots I wasn’t sure if that was in the studio at the time or on the glass plate itself. This shot seems to show that it was a shadow in the studio as it curves in the bottom left of the shot.
So a two for one in this shot, another Leslie Bainbridge shot and of the fabulous June Palmer, prefect! The new gallery for photos by Leslie Bainbridge should be up and running at some point today and will again be broken down by models as with Terry Sparks and Howard Roark where I have enough photos of each model 🙂
A wonderful rear view of the smooth curves of Rosemary de Canonville by Leslie Bainbridge as she kneels on a sofa. This comes from a set of images of Rosemary along with a dozen more models all taken by Bainbridge including Jackie Rigby, Vicky Ashley, Clare Dobson and others, plus a few unknowns. These type of shots usually ended up in the pages of Health & Efficiency (H&E) and Girl Illustrated, but can’t recall seeing Rosemary, but I may have missed her?
I have in excess of over 500 images of these lovely ladies by Bainbridge, so may have to have another section dedicated to the ladies of H&E?
This slicked up shot of a glistening body is of Erica as if you needed to guess and comes from Kamera No.20 P32 (1959). As I’ve said before it seems that Harrison Marks had a thing for Erica oiled up, as I’ve seen more or Erica with oil on her body than not. Just an observation, as what’s not to like about seeing Erica or her body at least and those oiled curves!
You’ve got to love a girl in fishnet tights! Well fishnet anything will do in my book and this is a great shot of 1960’s UK model Tracy Reeves wearing fishnet tights! A great smile amd pair of tits as well and no wig from Tracy this time just her natural long hair, not sure about the bedspread though 🙂
