I have a set of 6 prints of Pamela Green posing as a Hula Girl like this, but this is the first colour version I’ve seen of her thanks to member Simon. Scanned from a Pamar colour slide this was probably taken in the late 1950’s as the hula skirt appears on an unknown model in Kamera Special No.1 (1957). The Pamar slide can vary in quality from very poor to really good, with little degradation to colours like this shot.

A stunning view in more than one way of Jean Spaul (Sporle) and Pamela Green. Taken by Harrison Marks on the balcony of the apartment he owned with Pam down in Hampstead and obviously a good position for a spot of nude sunbathing! The original cropped version of Pam and Jean together on this balcony was published in Kamera No.27 P27 (1960) and also features several other shots of the two, in and around the grounds of the apartment.
Thanks to Simon for sending through this scan of this original negative. Interestingly the actual negative, along with others that Simon has sent through has blue marking or pen added over the pubic regions. One assumes this may have been added as part of the developing process to hide sensitive bits when printed for publication? Anyone heard of this before, as it’s the first I’ve seen or heard about it. Thankfully modern scanners can be adapted to remove the blue colour, so we get to see Jean and Pam in all their fully glory, or at least a peak at it!

Another harder to find Harrison Marks Special, this time ‘Magnificent Monique’ starring Monique Deveraux of course! This was a 64 page booklet published in 1967 and accompanied the Harrison Marks 8mm cine film of the same name.
Thanks again to Simon T for providing the cover scan and filling yet another gap in my Kamera Specials
