June Palmer – Girl Illustrated No.37

As promised, June Palmer from the pages of Girl Illustrated Vol.4 No.37 (1970).  The magazine shows three monochrome pictures, where she is shown wearing unzipped trousers and has shoulder length hair. The single colour shot appears to be an older photograph. GI states that she is only rarely modelling at the time, but has returned to the pages by popular request. This would tie in with the published date of 1970 and JP’s ‘retirement’ from public modelling, until her re-appearance in 1977.

June Palmer Coloured From Girl Illustrated

It feels like a bit of a June Palmer day, not that there is anything wrong with that!  Another coloured version of June Palmer from my friend Oldiznewagain over on Tumblr and it always amazes me how good he gets the skin tones on these!

The original comes from Girl Illustrated magazine published in 1970 and is part of a set of 4 images and I’ll be publishing the full set of images later.

The Look! – A June Palmer Original

This wasn’t going to be my intended post of an original June Palmer shot this week, but when I saw the above shot from John W last night I just had to share!

June sure could work the camera as everything about this shot just oozes sensuality! The look in her eyes (which are green!),  the chin resting slightly on  the pushed up cleavage, or the tongue brushing across her teeth!

Absolutely stunning!

The image comes from a 35mm slide scan and is pretty much untouched, other than the odd speck of dirt removed and every detail can be seen in such an intimate and close-up shot.  It’s part of a set of 8 photo’s that John got from Teri Martine herself, but it’s unknown who took the shots.  The Sheepskin rug makes another appearance and a chaise lounge in other shots, so it’s an educated guess that these were probably taken at Strobe Studio’s and by Arthur Howell.

It goes without saying that the JP images John provides are blowing me away, so I know I say it, but thanks must go to John for sharing his collection with me and then you.

Annie Walker – The Mystique of a Mature Woman

An older Ann Walker (34) posing in Mayfair Magazine Vol.11 No.10 (October 1974), original images and text included below.  She sure looked good and I love the last two images below, what a glorious full natural bush she had!  Anyone know if the modelling agency part was true and if she’s still in the business?


The Mystique of the Mature Woman – Annie Walker

Back in the supposedly swinging sixties before Mayfair and others like it appeared to revolutionise British men’s magazines,  the ‘pin-up’ reigned supreme.  Black and white, coyle posed, tastefully lit studies in which bare boobs were OK, but pubes and sizzle were strictly verboten.  Even so, despite the blandness of the studies, one girl seemed to project an aura of sexuality that set her apart.  Her name was Annie Walker and she was just about the most popular and sought after model of that time.


Some ten years ago though, Annie gave up modelling and opened her own highly successful modelling agency in North London.  She’s now 34 years old, a sleek 34-22-34 and pleased to return if only temporary, to the modelling scene.  ‘It’s all very different now’ maintains Annie.  ‘Everything used to be terribly posed, but now it’s much more relaxed and natural.  I wouldn’t have posed for the more blatant pictures that some magazines carry at the moment – I much prefer Mayfair’s style.’  Annie’s modelling career started when she was 18, posing for students at the St Martin’s Art School in London, from which she quickly moved on to magazine work and the her own agency.


With Annie’s background and past appeal in mind, she seemed to us the natural answer to all the oft-repeated requests for a photoset on an ‘older woman’.  ‘I don’t know whether younger men see me as the mature type,.’ says Annie.  ‘To be honest it’s not something I’ve really thought about.  But I do like to be treated as a woman – being the chased rather than the chaser. I’m not married, so I socialise a lot. Men? Oh, those in their 30’s usually.’ Which says much for their taste. Here’s to ten years time Annie.




Pamela Green – Full Men Only Interview (1974)

As promised in this post the full interview of Pamela Green from Men Only Magazine, Vol.39 No.5 (May 1974).  An interesting read if you’re a PG fan and she makes an interesting comment about reviving Rita Landre with a new wig! Anyone know if she ever did and if any photo’s are around?
