Another superb shot of a 1960’s model named Rita Schondale scanned from an original strip of 35mm negatives. As you can see from above this came in it’s original negative album along with details of the model and location. The album contained 3 strips of negatives totaling 18 photo’s and was shot on Tuesday 20th September 1966 at Jason Studios.
Rita has a more curvy figure and if the details on the album are to be believe she was married with children, which wouldn’t surprise me as many models were just normal housewives that did a bit of modelling on the side. I love this pose as she supports her boobs and the fabulous frilly knickers she’s wearing. Nothing risque in this set as the most Rita shows is her tits and figure, but still fabulous to see. I’ve also recently seen a set of Rita posing with none other than Dawn Grayson as a duo, so she obviously was more than just a casual model? More of Rita to come as well as other models from Jason Studios ?
A superb shot of 1960’s model Shelia Bancroft scanned from an original strip of 35mm negatives. As you can see from above this came in it’s original negative album along with details of the model and location. The album contained 3 strips of negatives totaling 18 photo’s and was shot on Thursday 1st May 1969 at Jason Studios. It seems that Jason Studios was a popular place back in the 60’s for glamour photography, as I have several other albums and models taken at the studio and know that Paul from Firebird also has a large collection as well. No details on the photographer, but I’m assuming possibly amateur as taken on 35mm film rather than medium format?
Shelia has a stunning figure and of course a very nice 38″ bust accompanied by a nice neatly trimmed pussy. The hairstyle and make-up are typically 60’s as is the chain belt, which is the only thing she is wearing in all 18 shots! She is also very familiar, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she also posed for some of the more popular photographers of the time, as well as doing the odd amateur shoot, as most models seemed to do back then. More of Shelia to come as well as other models from Jason Studios 🙂
A beautiful 10 x 8 original print of Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge. I have literally 100’s of shots of Dawn in my collection and I’m trying to remember if I have any of her that show her so open and exposed? Saying that someone did mention to me that Bainbridge had a way of making the models relax and ‘open up’ for him and it certainly looks like it worked for Dawn.
This is one of my favourite recent shots of Dawn, along with another print of her by Bainbridge. I’m also trying to remember if I’ve ever seen her in the pages of H&E, she appears on various covers and within Girl Illustrated, the other Bainbridge publication, but I’ve only ever seen her on the cover of H&E No.835 (Nov 1970). Does anyone know if she ever appeared within the pages of H&E? Looking at the above shot it could well have appeared in either of the publications, if at all, but surely too good not to publish?
I’ve just been sent this fantastic bit of memorabilia from John W and couldn’t resist editing and posting it! It’s the November page of the 1983 calendar from Duplex Communications and features a fabulous shot of a mature June Palmer basking naked in the sun on the sea edge. I don’t know if this was actually taken in 83 or earlier, but it’s definitely a more mature June with fuller figure.
I remember seeing this type of calendar in workshops and garages back in the day, before it became sexist and started causing offence! They seemed to be everywhere and can remember there being several up around the garage workshop where my dad worked, plus a huge pile of discarded ones in the corner. Just imagine what those calendars would go for now, especially the good ones like Pirelli, Snap-on Tools and Dunlop. Oh for a time machine so I could go back and collect up all those discarded ones in a box to keep for now 🙂
Two shots of the gorgeous April Dawson from the pages of Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.35 (1969) showing off her slender figure. Interestingly if you believe the little introduction she’s originally from Southend on Sea, married and devotes her time to dog breeding when she’s not modelling nude for the likes of Harrison Marks and others. The pink hair clip in the colour shot also appears in the 4 colour slides I have of her here, but with different earrings.
