A Snorkelling June (Original)

June was a keen snorkeller and this shot is one of two shots of her posing in this fetching leopard skin print bathing suit preparing to go snorkelling in the early 1960’s.  Location unknown, but as I have others of her underwater in Corsica, it’s a good guess this is the same location.

June Palmer – Pink & Yellow Set, Part 1 (Originals)

As promised the first five images of June posing on a set consisting of pink, yellow and orange translucent drapes and what looks like a stool covered with tin foil! Probably taken in the 1960’s but actual date and location unknown?

Part 2 with 5 more images from this set coming shortly …

June Palmer by Roy Tresadern

Taken from the centre pages of ‘The Model Magazine – Winter Indoor Edition’ June posing for Roy Tresadern and again holding a cigarette.  The Model Magazine was a 30 page black and white magazine that helped freelance glamour photographers with everything from make-up advice to studio’s and models for hire.  It was produced quarterly by Shields Picture Agency in Glasgow, Scotland and this edition is dated January 1967.

It includes images of several models, but has seven images of the Lovely June in various poses, including the centrefold above.  I’ve edited the image and removed staple marks as best I could 🙂

June & Cigarettes

This comes from the cartoon page of Carnival Magazine in the 1960’s (Unknown date).  It shows June in a see through bikini or underwear set, including a baby doll holding a cigarette.  

What is interesting about this shot is the wide acceptance of posing with cigarettes in the 1960’s in magazines of this type.  I’ve come across many other similar shots where the model is posing smoking or holding a cigarette and have several of June in the 60’s and 70’s holding cigarette’s in formally posed shots as well as snapshots.  I know attitudes towards smoking have changed over the years as we realized what it does to your health, but it still seems strange seeing June and models posing with them! 

June was a smoker throughout most of her career and life, so there are many more examples of her smoking in images, so this is filed under ‘June Smoking’ as I publish other examples later.
