Tina Revealed!

After posting this image I recently acquired there was some discussion about the ID of the model. Well now it seems we have been able to ID her and have a name. Her actual name or the name that appears in several publications is Tina McLaren. Not Tina McFarland as was written on the cover of the original negatives, but that may have been a mix up!

Tina appeared in several publications back in the 1960’s Including Span Extra No.8, 66 No.45 and Beautiful Britons Extra No.14. With the above shot appearing in Span Extra No.8. Several publications refer to Tina as a coffee coloured 20 year old girl with a 37″ 23″ 36″ figure. I’m not sure they would get away with calling her coffee coloured today 🙂

Thanks to both Tonal Range and Jonathan from Vintage Fetish for helping ID Tina and the magazine scans of her.

Another beautiful model identified and more of the lovely Tina to come posing in the bath nude 😉

Beautiful Figure, Beautiful Smile! (Original)

What a smile from this beauty and what a great figure. Now the annoying bit I have no idea who she is! This shot comes from a set of negatives I have and feature her in several poses on the bed and in the bath. All show off her fantastic smile and body to great effect. 

The images look to be early 1960’s and taken in the UK. I say that only because I have shots of Caron Gardiner, Virginia Green and others posing on the same bed. There is a name on the cover that the negatives came in of Tina McFarland, but I can find no reference to that name in any of my archives or online. 

She also has a bit of colour to her almost a Latin/Hispanic look, but no idea who? Anyone able to recognise her?

Thelma by Harrison Marks (1958)

Someone once asked if I had any shots of Thelma by Harrison Marks and at the time I only had one poor shot of her in my collection. Well that has now been rectified as I now have several good shots of her from Kamera No.11 (1958), including the colour centrefold shot of her above. A dusky Latin beauty that I know very little about, other than she posed for GHM in early editions of Kamera.

This shot comes from Kamera No.11 my latest acquisition and although complete and in good condition for it’s age the pages were splitting around the rusty staples.  I’ve restored colour and obviously removed the staple marks and a few scratches, but a fantastic colour shot of Thelma and an appearance of the Leopard skin rug again!
