Marie Deveraux (1940-2019)

I heard the sad news today that Marie Deveraux passed away at the end of last year (30th December 2019). Marie real name Patricia Sutcliffe was one of the first models to became a regular and very popular nude model in magazines during the late 1950’s. She had a brief career in cinema, usually as a sexy girl in comedies, dramas and horror films and appeared in several Hammer Horror films including “The Brides of Dracula” (1960) and was Elizabeth Taylor’s stand-in in Cleopatra (1963)

Marie was one of the original group of models that posed for Harrison Marks in the late 1950’s for his Kamera publication and appeared in many of the early editions including the covers of No.2, No.5, No.10 and No.14. She was also one of three models that went to the Isles of Scilly in 1959, along with Pamela Green and Lorraine Burnett and featured throughout the original ‘Kamera on Location’.

A true glamour model legend πŸ™

June Palmer – A Portrait of Beauty! (Original)

As I’ve said before believe it or not, not all of my collection are nudes or glamour related. I also have a large collection of β€˜normal’ shots of my favourite models posing for standard profile shots or just dressed! June Palmer is no exception, in fact I think I have more shots of June dressed and posing ‘normally’ than any other model.

This is a fine example of a portrait shot of a young June with long hair and is simply stunning, so too good not to share even if she is dressed πŸ™‚

Raine by Roark (Original)

Tracy Raine taken by Howard Roark in the studio, so R could be for Raine or Roark! Another typical US beauty by Roark, but I do love the knowing look on her face as flashes her pussy by pulling down her panties for the camera πŸ™‚

A Hint of Cruella! (Original)

As I identify one unknown model I post another to replace it and this is a very good replacement. A stunning pose from an unknown model taken by Harrison Marks in the studio and not a model I’ve seen published anywhere, as far as I can recall? Obviously a model with some colour in her, but very distinctive hair, face and make-up, with a hint of a Cruella de Vil streak in her hair πŸ™‚

Fabulous kneeling pose showing off her figure, small tits and a very large bushy mound, although it’s hard to tell if that’s a full bush or just growing back. Another model to add to the unknown list πŸ™‚

Bridget Leonard – A Fuller View! (Original)

I originally published the version of this shot here scanned directly from Kamera No.46 (1962), but now I have the original negative of the shot by Harrison Marks in my collection. As you can see the quality is crystal clear and shows off Bridget, her tits and necklace much better than the published version. I’ve also taken the liberty of cropping the shot differently from the shot in kamera keeping the shot wider, so you can see more of the lovely Bridget. A stunning shot and pose as well from GHM at his best πŸ™‚
