A View From the Soho Backroom!

From the series ‘The Undressing Room’, 1968 © John Goldblatt

An interesting shot from Roop that was originally posted to the forum, but worthy of a share here. A backroom shot of models relaxing in a dressing room of Soho perhaps? The model in the foreground reading the paper is none other than GHM model Hilde Beck and Roop suggests that the partial smoking model may be Monique Deveraux due to the hairstyle? He may well be right, but difficult to tell from what we can see. 

I love it when these informal shots surface of life back then as a model, not all glamour I would think and plenty of sitting around and waiting for the next shoot or performance. Thanks to Roop for finding this little gem and sharing it 🙂
