I finally have the fourth slide from the Esquire 35mm colour slide set No.48 featuring June Simpson posing nude in a red paddling pool! I’ve restored the colour on all four now and you can see scans of the original slides before restoration below. I’ve also included the original advert for the set that was featured in a catalogue for Esquire slide sets. As you will see these were part of a set of 8, but don’t think the other 4 slides were of June, but I may be wrong? All of the the images of June in the red paddling pool I’ve posted so far can be found here.

Another promotional shot by London photo agency Cowderoy & Moss Ltd featuring June posing on a Lambretta Scooter. This time we see June down at the beach, sat astride the scooter in a fetching pair of striped pants, white cardigan top and scarf, as she hands off her bag to a chap in a beach hut! I always enjoy seeing this different side of June and her non glamour work during the height of her career. It seems like she had enjoyed posing on Scooters and cars a lot 🙂

When I found this first shot of June and Eve Eden posing on a Lambretta Scooter I had hoped I would find more, but had never found any until now! I saw this shot several weeks ago being sold over on eBay by Teri Martine, but knew it would be popular so never bid on it. Fortunately for me John W did and he won it along with a few others, so I now have a copy to share.
The text that accompanied this image from Teri on eBay suggested that it was June posing on the back of a British Lambretta scooter and was done for the company that made the scooters and quite possible it was used for one of their ads in a magazine. John also sent me some other shots of June posing in the studio on a Lambretta for the company Cowderoy & Moss Ltd, so this could also be for them?
The other model is Eve Eden who did another commercial with June on a scooter and potentially that was the first shot of the two I posted. A fantastic piece of memorabilia and thanks to John for sending me a copy of this image featuring two of my favourite models. Surprisingly the first shot of June and Eve is one of my most popular images and they even had their clothes on!

A two page advert from a photographic magazine in 1959 (title unknown) offering the delightful services of a young June Palmer. I do like a bit of memorabilia of June and there were a couple of lines that made me chuckle in this advert, ‘A Very Good Model Indeed’ is very understated and I love the old style telephone number that uses words and numbers. I also like the fee per hour of £1 10 6, which works out in today’s prices as about £85 an hour. For an hour photographing June cheap at half the price and worth every penny. I know others have photographed June at various times throughout her career including John, so I’m curious what did they pay for the privilege of shooting June?
