The cover of the first edition of Amber by Russell Gay, featuring a model I recognise but unable to name at present? This first edition featured classic models posing in underwear or topless such as Nancy Roberts, Erica and Rochelle Lofting and was published towards the end of the 1950’s or possibly the early 60’s. Classic stuff from Russell Gay and up there as some of my favourite early glamour publications along with QT, Model and Coral.
A new year thanks to Paul from Firebird Records who continues to supply me with copies of these vintage beauties 🙂
Ann Walker looking wonderful as she poses by the window topless showing off her fine figure in stockings, suspenders and black panties. A beautifully restore print from the studio of Russell Gay and a great view of Ann, just a shame about the ladder in that stocking, picky I know 🙂
The cover of Model No.3 by Russell Gay featuring a stunning overhead view of a model who’s name escapes me at the moment, but I’m sure someone will remind me. A larger format magazine than QT but an underrated magazine in my view as the magazine and models were always worth a peruse!
Frankie Young posed for many of the key photographers back in the 1960’s, including Russell Gay and Harrison Marks. This seems to be a shot by Russell Gay and is the most open and revealing shot I’ve seen of her to date, as she normally keeps her knickers on or poses in a way to hide what lies below!
Frankie posed for GHM in Kameras No.55 (1963), No.56, in which she appears on the cover and No.58. She is the star of Solo No.37 and further photos from earlier shoots were published in Kameras No.69, 73 & 75, and in Kamera Special No.3. She also appears on eight of the large format pages of Harrison Marks’ prestigious hardback coffee table book, ‘She Walks in Beauty’. There are two glamour movies featuring Frankie: No.47 ‘Frankly Frankie’ & No.51 ‘What the Eye Doesn’t See’. I have a copy of the first film, so must dig it out and publish it 🙂
A stunning open view of Frankie!
A restored 35mm colour slide of Eve Eden (Rosa Domaille) by Russell Gay, as she poses with some gold netting. The familiar coloured checked background appears that is synonymous with early Gay shots used in QT and the netting hides anything untoward that may have needed to be censored 🙂
