Liza Martelle

Liza Martelle (Dawn Grayson) – We know GHM had a propensity to give his models aliases when they modelled in wigs, such as Rita Landre (Pam Green) and Mary Stephan (Caroline Coon). What I didn’t know is that Dawn Grayson had one as well when modelling in the blonde wig above! Apparently she was known as Liza Martelle, a beautiful strip artist from the crazy horse in Paris.

GHM revealed this in an interview for Fiesta magazine in 1976 called ‘ Harrison Marks Rides Again!’.  He also said that she was in London for an appearance and due to his sheer charm and youthful sex appeal he was lucky enough to get her before his camera … and other places! 

Well I never! That’s the first time I have come across Liza Martelle and a photo similar to the one above appears with those comments.  So, unless there is another Liza Martelle or the photo was wrong, then it’s Dawn Grayson 🙂

Ann Austin & The Wicker Chair!

Another shot from this fantastic set of Ann Austin posing in various locations outside of Ewhurst.  This one has Ann posing in a wicker chair outside what looks like the cottage at Ewhurst, as you can just see the doorstep to the left. (Source: Scanner-Vision)

June Palmer – Girl Illustrated No.37

As promised, June Palmer from the pages of Girl Illustrated Vol.4 No.37 (1970).  The magazine shows three monochrome pictures, where she is shown wearing unzipped trousers and has shoulder length hair. The single colour shot appears to be an older photograph. GI states that she is only rarely modelling at the time, but has returned to the pages by popular request. This would tie in with the published date of 1970 and JP’s ‘retirement’ from public modelling, until her re-appearance in 1977.

June Palmer Coloured From Girl Illustrated

It feels like a bit of a June Palmer day, not that there is anything wrong with that!  Another coloured version of June Palmer from my friend Oldiznewagain over on Tumblr and it always amazes me how good he gets the skin tones on these!

The original comes from Girl Illustrated magazine published in 1970 and is part of a set of 4 images and I’ll be publishing the full set of images later.
