Totally Trudy (1969)





Five shots of Trudy Eyre (Angela Duncan) taken by Terry Sparks. As I said in a previous post I hadn’t realized that Terry had taken any photo’s of Trudy until he sent these, but then he explained he had and that her real name (or name on the cheques) was Trudy.

A couple of things you will notice about these shots. Some are very familiar and if you look on some of the vintage forums you will see similar images to these at the same location that have been published in various men’s publications during the late 1960’s and 70’s. Secondly and unfortunate, these images are only small and not up to the usually high standard I get from Terry, but there is a reason for that, which I’m sure Terry won’t mind me sharing. As Terry explains –  “My own black/white files, some 27000 negatives were all destroyed in 2003 at the behest of her indoors. Something I have bitterly regretted ever since, as they would have been worth a few bob on Ebay. The only good news is that I took three or four shots of the best girls and transferred them onto a SVHS tape before the destruction took place. I am hoping to be able to digitise the tape onto my PC and then get some prints off, so far without much success.” Well Terry managed to get some images off the tape and those are the ones above.

Hearing Terry’s story I think I was as gutted to hear this story as he was! Think of all those great images I could have shared, but then I realize what I’ve already seen and shared and I’m glad Terry has shared what he managed to retain. Plus we do get a glimpse at some of the models such as Trudy that he had the pleasure of shooting over his career.

Thanks to Terry as always for sharing an insight into his collection 🙂

Busting Out With Angela!

I’ve managed to get a full set of 36 images of the ‘Oh Nurse!’ set featuring Angela in the countryside dressed and stripping out of a nurses uniform. I’d published those I’d previously found here, but I’ll get the rest edited and published when I can. This one is an early shot in the set as it has Angela still clothed, if only just, but bursting out from her tight fitting bra!

I’ve also had it recently confirmed that her real name was Trudy Eyre by Terry Sparks, or that was the name her wrote on the cheques when he paid her for modelling sessions with him. I didn’t know Terry had even photographed Angela/Trudy, but he’s sent me through a selection of his shots of her and some look very familiar indeed and ended up in some popular men’s publications back in the late 1960’s. But those shots are for another day and another post 🙂
