Dawn Grayson – A Little Overdone! (Original)

A different shot of Dawn Grayson from an original medium format negative, that unfortunately I had to restore and crop down as the edges were faded and very magenta in colour. I’ve never seen any of these shots before of Dawn and the outfit is unusual. Not only that, but it seems Dawn had been out in the sun a little too long and caught the sun on the top of her thighs and arms, as they look a little red in comparison to her white tits that you can see through the blue mesh top! A most unusual shot and outfit with the blue top in comparison to the yellow panties. I have no idea who took this shot or if it even appeared in any publication.

The orange sheet on the floor made me chuckle, as I have an old pair of curtains in that very same colour and material. They are not used as curtains, but more as old dust sheets for painting etc and I think they came from my parents, but don’t remember them as curtains. Funny to see them in a shot back in the 1960’s, again not as curtains but as floor covering. I’ll never be able to look at those covers in the same light again next time I have them out for decorating 🙂

A Very Woolly Story (Original)

A very odd title for this post I know, but bare with me (pun intended!) After publishing this post  mentioning the fabled sheepskin rugs that appear in many shots from Strobe, itsgarden contacted me to give me this great little story about the said rugs.

‘As to the sheepskins, as you can imagine floor boards can be pretty hard to sit on/lie on for a couple of hours whilst posing for photographs. So when I first met June at ScotLee Studios the only complaint she ever had been the hardness of floor boards and the marks on her body they left. So being a country boy, I suggested she used sheepskin rugs to make the floor softer and to prevent marks on her from pressure points. I duly supplied 6 full-sized sheepskins to Brian Scott at Scotlee and another 6 to Arthur when I started to use Strobe Studios. She was forever grateful.’

So, there we have it, the origins of the fabled sheepskin rugs and where they came from and why they appear in so many shots! Well done Itsgardin as you are quite right, June didn’t need her delicate pressure points up against those hard floorboards, that just wouldn’t have done and thanks for the great story 🙂

Oh and the above shot of Itsgardin was used because there was some rug in the background and I love the sheer nightie showing her great tits and it was taken at the Scotlee studio’s in 1979

Low Cut & Transparent (Original)

Another restored shot from a new source, so thanks first to Redheadkingpin over on Tumblr for allowing me to share some of his scans of original June negatives. This image has been restored and scratches removed, but the original is also included below so you can see the difference. This shot looks to have been taken at the same time as the ‘Orange Basque’ set, as the background is the same and she’s wearing the same stockings.  I do like the low cut bra and white transparent panties in this set though and unfortunately only have one more shot of this set from Redheadkingpin, unless there are others out there?
