I’ve just been sent this fantastic bit of memorabilia from John W and couldn’t resist editing and posting it! It’s the November page of the 1983 calendar from Duplex Communications and features a fabulous shot of a mature June Palmer basking naked in the sun on the sea edge. I don’t know if this was actually taken in 83 or earlier, but it’s definitely a more mature June with fuller figure.
I remember seeing this type of calendar in workshops and garages back in the day, before it became sexist and started causing offence! They seemed to be everywhere and can remember there being several up around the garage workshop where my dad worked, plus a huge pile of discarded ones in the corner. Just imagine what those calendars would go for now, especially the good ones like Pirelli, Snap-on Tools and Dunlop. Oh for a time machine so I could go back and collect up all those discarded ones in a box to keep for now 🙂
Another promotional shot by London photo agency Cowderoy & Moss Ltd featuring June Palmer and Eve Eden posing on a couple of Lambretta Scooters with two fellow male models in nice jumpers. Obviously meant to look as though they are riding the scooters as they pose, just a shame you can see the stands are down holding the scooters in place! I love these different shots of June and Eve showing a glamour models life wasn’t all nudes and boobs 🙂
Another fabulous shot of June Palmer from this set of promotional shots by London photo agency Cowderoy & Moss Ltd featuring June posing on a Lambretta Scooter. This time we see June getting friendly with a male friend sat beside a scooter at a crossroads on the A2. I love the fact the sign post is in the shot as it pinpoints the location as the crossroads on the Hawkhurst Road, where the A21 crosses the A268.
I would also say it was taken at the same location as the shot below of Eve Eden and June for several reasons. It’s the same registration plate on both scooters, June is wearing the same outfit and if you look at the building in the background I’m sure it’s the same door in this Google street view, which is again on the A21/A268 crossroads?
Thanks to John W for a copy of this new print of June at the crossroads 🙂
Two classic vintage models in one shot! June Palmer posing on the roof of a vintage Elva Courier out in the countryside, just outside Biggin Hill. At the time this shot was taken Biggin Hill was in Kent, UK, but now sits in the London Borough of Bromley.
June is actually dressed in these shots in a classic tight jumper and white skirt, so not your normal glamour shot, but maybe a couple of snapshots on the road? It’s hard to tell if they were snapshots as June did model with this and another car for this promo shot, but these look like they just stopped at a crossroads and took a few shots posing on the car. At a guess I’d say the location based on the crossroads sign was just off the B2024 near Tatsfield, as one of the signs points towards the local church.
Thanks to John W for these fabulous shots of June and the Elva Courier, not your normal June shots, but still some great memorabilia from back in the 60’s.
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 🙂
