Alison Wills on the cover of Mayfair Vol.16 No.11 (Nov 1981). I will always have an affinity to Mayfair, as it was one of my first introductions into glamour/men’s magazines as a young adult. This cover along with a few others was one of my favourites and always manages to get a reaction! There’s nothing particularly risque about the cover, other than maybe the way Alison is posing, but it does it for me!
The shots of Alison within the magazine are equally as good and reveal far more of what’s beneath that white leotard than the cover, but sometimes less is more and makes the mind work 🙂 Incidentally Alison’s very young almost school girl like look helped her progress her career as a model in the 1980’s. She went on to appear in several other magazine’s and did a lot more explicit stuff in magazines with titles like Sweet Little 16 and so on, which I don’t think I need to explain further!
I have other very vivid memories of Mayfair including a young Linda Lusardi and a severe crush on Rosemary England, or least some very nice bits of her. All of which have probably helped drive and develop my tastes as I got older, but I always seem to revert back to my Mayfair days!
I’ve had these two shots of Georgina Wilson and this Coke bottle for ages and may have posted them on one of my older blogs, but they still really appeal to me. I think it must be the way the water from the bottle runs down her body in the way, especially the second shot 🙂 These plus other shots of Georgina appeared in Mayfair Magazine Vol.14 No.8 (Aug 1979) and until recently that was all I had.
Recently I’ve found out she actually modelled under another name, Linda Butler and I have 4 superb originals of her as well! So until I post the new ones, time to re-enjoy these shots of Georgina/Linda.
Dawn Grayson on the back page of Mayfair Magazine Vol.1 No.3 (November 1966) helping to advertise the December 1966 edition for the bargain price of five shillings.
Here’s a new one to me from the pages of Mayfair Magazine Vol.1 No.4 (December 1966) a line up of well know 1960’s models. Unless I am mistaken from left to right we have Lee Southern (Grace Jackson), Dawn Grayson, Teri Martine, Unknown, Bobby Shaw and finally Annette Johnson. Sorry I can’t place the lovely in red, but she looks familiar, but not a regular on here, anyone put me out of my misery and name her?
Thanks must go to Dasduffer over on VEF for scanning and sharing this, along with some new Dawn Grayson and Teri Martine material from early Mayfair issues, which I hope to share here soon.
