Passing of a Friend

It is with great sadness I have to announce that friend and long time contributor to the site Paul Pollak passed away in March. Paul ran Firebird Records down on Portabello Road in London and although his main passion was vinyl records, he also had a love of vintage glamour.

I first came across Paul back in 2014 when my site was in its first few years. I purchased several copies of Kamera Magazine from his eBay site that I had missing, and we instantly struck up a friendship discussing Harrison Marks and other photographers. Furthermore, I also started helping him identify models, and things took off from there. There wasn’t a week went by where we didn’t chat about vintage glamour, how we hated eBay or even sometimes records.

Recently, I even helped him identify a number of 1960s models that appeared on the classic Jimi Hendrix Album ‘Electric Ladyland’, which I posted here.

Very sad news and I, for one, will miss our chats and the contribution he made to this site.
