Annie Walker – The Mystique of a Mature Woman

An older Ann Walker (34) posing in Mayfair Magazine Vol.11 No.10 (October 1974), original images and text included below.  She sure looked good and I love the last two images below, what a glorious full natural bush she had!  Anyone know if the modelling agency part was true and if she’s still in the business?

The Mystique of the Mature Woman – Annie Walker

Back in the supposedly swinging sixties before Mayfair and others like it appeared to revolutionise British men’s magazines,  the ‘pin-up’ reigned supreme.  Black and white, coyle posed, tastefully lit studies in which bare boobs were OK, but pubes and sizzle were strictly verboten.  Even so, despite the blandness of the studies, one girl seemed to project an aura of sexuality that set her apart.  Her name was Annie Walker and she was just about the most popular and sought after model of that time.

Some ten years ago though, Annie gave up modelling and opened her own highly successful modelling agency in North London.  She’s now 34 years old, a sleek 34-22-34 and pleased to return if only temporary, to the modelling scene.  ‘It’s all very different now’ maintains Annie.  ‘Everything used to be terribly posed, but now it’s much more relaxed and natural.  I wouldn’t have posed for the more blatant pictures that some magazines carry at the moment – I much prefer Mayfair’s style.’  Annie’s modelling career started when she was 18, posing for students at the St Martin’s Art School in London, from which she quickly moved on to magazine work and the her own agency.

With Annie’s background and past appeal in mind, she seemed to us the natural answer to all the oft-repeated requests for a photoset on an ‘older woman’.  ‘I don’t know whether younger men see me as the mature type,.’ says Annie.  ‘To be honest it’s not something I’ve really thought about.  But I do like to be treated as a woman – being the chased rather than the chaser. I’m not married, so I socialise a lot. Men? Oh, those in their 30’s usually.’ Which says much for their taste. Here’s to ten years time Annie.

  1. Interestingly, Ann Walker&#39;s &quot;comeback&quot; in &quot;Mayfair&quot; in 1974 pre-dates that of June Palmer in the same magazine by almost three years? I wonder if AW&#39;s reappearance influenced that of JP?<br />I don&#39;t know whether the story about the model agency is true, but it seems credible and, by another coincidence, is it not also what JP did when she semi-retired in the

    • You make a good point about the comebacks and you are probably right. If you looked at AW&#39;s comeback you&#39;d probably think I could do that and still look as good, so why not! June ran Strobe Studios with Arthur Howell, during the 1960&#39;s and after she retired and she continued to model privately into the 1980&#39;s. I know they had other models on the books that were used for photo

    • Interestingly I have some originals of both Jo and Judie as well. Although they don&#39;t fit into the scope of this site I might just publish them anyway as they were taken at Strobe studios, so a tenuous link with JP!
