I’ve just been sent this fantastic bit of memorabilia from John W and couldn’t resist editing and posting it! It’s the November page of the 1983 calendar from Duplex Communications and features a fabulous shot of a mature June Palmer basking naked in the sun on the sea edge. I don’t know if this was actually taken in 83 or earlier, but it’s definitely a more mature June with fuller figure.
I remember seeing this type of calendar in workshops and garages back in the day, before it became sexist and started causing offence! They seemed to be everywhere and can remember there being several up around the garage workshop where my dad worked, plus a huge pile of discarded ones in the corner. Just imagine what those calendars would go for now, especially the good ones like Pirelli, Snap-on Tools and Dunlop. Oh for a time machine so I could go back and collect up all those discarded ones in a box to keep for now 🙂
