I have had several sets of original negatives of this beauty in my collection for a while now, but never posted her, as she was down as an unknown to me. This shot comes from a set of 35mm negatives taken in the studio by an amateur photographer, but I also have a set of her taken by Harrison Marks on the bedroom set in pigtails.
Well now thanks to a happy coincidence I’ve been able to name her and several other unknown models. Last week Paul from Firebird Records sent over a dozen pages of original studio leaflets containing details of the studio’s, the facilities and a list of models on their books and how amateur photographers could book them and how much it would cost. More of that in another post, but amongst the models listed was Gina Baker and upon searching the name it came up with images of the model above. The different model lists have Gina down as 5’0″ tall with long brown hair and her vital statistics of 35.23.35 and you could book her for the princely sum of £2/2/- per hour in the studio, bargain! At a guess I’d say this shot may well have been from one of those amateur sessions 🙂
Well it is December and time for the ramp up of all things Christmas related, unless you are one of those sad individuals that’s already had their Xmas decorations up for weeks! A slow ramp up here with the odd related image such as this beauty. An unknown model posing with Santa mask and a rather large candy cane from the 1950’s and I wouldn’t mind finding her under my tree Christmas morning!
The Jimi Hendrix Album ‘Electric Ladyland’ is 50 years old this year and one of it’s controversial and banned covers back then featured a bevvy of naked beauties posing on a black background. Several years ago I got asked if I could identify any of the models and back then my knowledge was lacking, but now I’ve been asked again and on revisiting the cover I realize that I can now name several of the models and recognize several more.
Back then the cover photographer, David Montgomery, said he found the girls in The Speakeasy nightclub in London, which may be true. But I know those I’ve identified were also well known glamour models appearing in many of the magazines back then and worked for the likes of Harrison Marks and Russell Gay. I’ve numbered the models I can now identify and the list is below, plus a few I recognize and have images of but have no name.
The two blondes front left also look familiar, but can’t put a name to the lovely faces. Anyone recognize any other models?
One of the models named Reine Sutcliffe was interviewed in Melody Maker in 1968. “It makes us look like a load of old tarts. It’s rotten. Everyone looked great, but the picture made us look old and tired. We were trying to look too sexy, but it didn’t work out.”
Thanks to Les for contacting me and asking to look at it again 🙂
Another 1970’s model by Howard Roark from my archive, this time Crystal Lord. I have around 75 different shots of this lovely lass and her massive chest and definitely your more curvy and fuller figured girl, not that I’m complaining 🙂
Another unknown model photographed by Harrison Marks that I thought I’d already posted but hadn’t! This model appears late in the Kamera run with her only appearing in the penultimate and final editions Kamera No.88 & No.89 (1968). This shot is from a number of negatives I have of her, but was also published in Kamera No.88 P20, but in a slightly retouched version. As you can see in this shot there is just a bit too much on show for publication back then, although they seem to have removed everything including the stubble in the printed version 🙂
Another model that always seemed to wear a wig when posing and I have this model down as Unknown Model No.38 in my list of unknown models
Update: I found her! This is actually 1960’s UK model Carol Marsden, so I’ll update everything and she’s no longer unknown 🙂
An updated version of the front and back cover of Nylon Flash No.16 Magazine featuring Angela Duncan (Trudi Ayre), Gerry Brown and Tracy Reeves of the super four girl special. The final girl, bottom left looks very familiar and I have several images of her, but as of yet her name escapes me?
Thanks to Tonal for reminding me I had a full copy of this magazine 🙂
More famed for the view from the front and her massive tits, a different view of Paula Page from behind! A great shot of her bum covered by patterned sheer panties and black stockings with just a hint of one of those big tits of hers.
Carrying on the theme of Harrison Marks glamour films today a shot of Sue Roberts on the sofa. I believe this is another still from the film ‘Tutti Fruity’ by Maximus International, which was the continental uncensored version of ‘Maid to Satisfy’ I believe?
A very satisfying shot of Sue and her small perky tits as she lays back on that sofa seductively enjoying that banana!
