A Very Woolly Story (Original)

A very odd title for this post I know, but bare with me (pun intended!) After publishing this post  mentioning the fabled sheepskin rugs that appear in many shots from Strobe, itsgarden contacted me to give me this great little story about the said rugs.

‘As to the sheepskins, as you can imagine floor boards can be pretty hard to sit on/lie on for a couple of hours whilst posing for photographs. So when I first met June at ScotLee Studios the only complaint she ever had been the hardness of floor boards and the marks on her body they left. So being a country boy, I suggested she used sheepskin rugs to make the floor softer and to prevent marks on her from pressure points. I duly supplied 6 full-sized sheepskins to Brian Scott at Scotlee and another 6 to Arthur when I started to use Strobe Studios. She was forever grateful.’

So, there we have it, the origins of the fabled sheepskin rugs and where they came from and why they appear in so many shots! Well done Itsgardin as you are quite right, June didn’t need her delicate pressure points up against those hard floorboards, that just wouldn’t have done and thanks for the great story 🙂

Oh and the above shot of Itsgardin was used because there was some rug in the background and I love the sheer nightie showing her great tits and it was taken at the Scotlee studio’s in 1979

Christine Jensen & The Squirrel! (1968)

Two shots of Christine Jensen from a shoot by Terry Sparks that appeared on a couple of Russell Gay publications or work purported to be by Russell Gay! The first is Fiesta Vol. 1 No.11 (Jan 1968) and the second a Whitestone Book No.84, British Figure Beauty. Christine looks great on both covers, just not sure about that squirrel!
Thanks to Terry for sharing these great covers of Christine.

Nice Sombrero, But Who is She? – Lynn Reeves

This one is driving me mad! I came across this shot of a model I recognise, but damned if I can remember her name, which I’m sure will be obvious once I find out, but anyone know?
This along with several other well known 1960’s models were over on Flickr and posted by a user who’s Dad took the photo’s in the 1960’s.  I noticed shots of June Palmer, June Russell, Jayne Tracey, Elaine Desmond and the above model.  I’ve tried to contact him to see if there are others and let him know I’ve posted this shot (Always nice to ask!)
Great shot if I could remember who she was! Edit: Thanks to everyone that identified her as Lynn Reeves 🙂
