Well it’s back to work after a fabulous Easter Break in the glorious sunshine and back to business as usual on here. I can’t say I have anything as alluring or as exciting as a topless Jenny Lane in stockings and suspenders waiting for me on my desk, but plenty of new vintage images to review and edit to keep me distracted 🙂
Love this shot of Jenny Lane laying atop a desk in the office in her stockings and suspenders, what a nice distraction from work. I also love the world map on the wall in the background, as it looks like one of those free giveaways or offers from the Daily Express back then.
Jenny Lane on the cover of Relax magazine Vol.2 No.7 flashing a bit of leg and stocking! Jenny looks quite attractive in this shot and love the very 1960’s psychedelic dress she’s wearing, I only have the cover so not sure if the dress comes off on the inside pages 😉
The Jimi Hendrix Album ‘Electric Ladyland’ is 50 years old this year and one of it’s controversial and banned covers back then featured a bevvy of naked beauties posing on a black background. Several years ago I got asked if I could identify any of the models and back then my knowledge was lacking, but now I’ve been asked again and on revisiting the cover I realize that I can now name several of the models and recognize several more.
Back then the cover photographer, David Montgomery, said he found the girls in The Speakeasy nightclub in London, which may be true. But I know those I’ve identified were also well known glamour models appearing in many of the magazines back then and worked for the likes of Harrison Marks and Russell Gay. I’ve numbered the models I can now identify and the list is below, plus a few I recognize and have images of but have no name.
The two blondes front left also look familiar, but can’t put a name to the lovely faces. Anyone recognize any other models?
One of the models named Reine Sutcliffe was interviewed in Melody Maker in 1968. “It makes us look like a load of old tarts. It’s rotten. Everyone looked great, but the picture made us look old and tired. We were trying to look too sexy, but it didn’t work out.”
Thanks to Les for contacting me and asking to look at it again 🙂
I have a huge collection of Jenny Lane negatives including several sets of 35mm black and white negatives. Most are similar to this shot with her posing in different outfits, most being underwear or fetish outfits, both leather and rubber! I don’t know what it is about Jenny, as she isn’t one of the most attractive models, but I just like shots of her and the different poses and shots she does. A very versatile model used by GHM and many others during the late 1960’s and she loved to pose in sheer panties showing of that bush below, so who am I to complain 🙂
Jenny Lane give us a flash of her left tit and sheer panties on the cover of Cloud No.10. The use of only one colour seems to work, although yellow seems to be quite a harsh colour to use, but it sure stands out and highlights Jenny on the cover.
