Merle Henry by Harrison Marks posing in his living room. A beautiful sculpted pose from her as she kneels showing of her slender form. One of my better shots of Merle and I’ve always wondered if she was English or where she came from as there is something about her look and colouring. 🙂
This is Yvette Windsor by Leslie Bainbridge looking very delicious kneeling nude outdoors. I’ve posted one of Yvette before here, from a set of 35 mm colour slides. They were only topless poses, whereas this shot is much more revealing of Yvette.
As per usual, Bainbridge has managed to persuade Yvette to pose totally nude, revealing her great tits and smooth pussy. So another UK model that posed for several photographers but seems to have gone that little further for Bainbridge. And it’s definitely Yvette, as I managed to match up the moles just to the side of her tummy button in this shot and some 35 mm slides. 🙂
Rosemary de Canonville giving us a great outdoor display of what she has to offer. Scanned from an original 10 by 8 print this shot was taken by Leslie Bainbridge and typical of his style.
It’s interesting to see the different styles and preferences of photographers back then. Roark obviously had a preference for the younger natural sun tanned models. Bainbridge opted for the fully shaven view leaving little to the imagination, but again with it’s own merits. I like both styles for different reasons, but still tend to go back to Harrison Marks and his more generic style of glamour photography. GHM tended to focus more on the shape and form of the models pose along with lighting than what the model had on offer.
Again we all enjoy differing styles, which is why I try and offer a bit of everything and as the years progressed so did glamour photography, either for the better or sometimes the worse 🙂
A beautiful shot of a dusky beauty in front of a bamboo room divider from an original 10 by 8 print from the collection of John f that I recently scanned. The beauty in question seems to be 1960s UK model Gay Simmons, although I could find very little about her other than one or two articles. I have several prints of her from John, plus I realized I had an original 35 mm negative of her, but she’s dressed in that one.
A stunning shot of Gay with her small pert tits and slender body and what looks like a smooth pussy, and she definitely looks to be of Indian descent. I also found that she modelled under the name Dania Faber as well.
A wet and wonderful view of Hazel Bradshaw by either Leslie Bainbridge or potentially Murray Wren. Hazel is one of a number of models that posed for and appeared in the pages of H&E, although I have no actual references to magazine numbers in which she appeared. Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge.
So where I’ve originally credited photo’s to Bainbridge they could well be by Wren instead, as the styles and locations are the same, so who knows! I also have over 200 different shots of Hazel from original contact sheets and prints in various locations both indoors and out. This shot seems to be on the sea edge as she kneels on some rocks, showing off her naked body and perky nipples. Like most Bainbridge/Wren models, she was completely shaven down below. 🙂
A beautiful shot of Rita by Murray Wren posing on the pool steps at Eureka Naturist Club in the 1970’s. This is another scan of an original print from John’s collection of which there are several shots of Rita.
Murray Wren edited H&E for much of the 1970’s and contributed photographs for many years more, as well as being a friend of Leslie Bainbridge. It was whilst searching for Murray I came across The Murray Wren Photo Archive which showcases his work over the years, plus it has many galleries of his work and some of the models that posed for him. That is where I came across similar shots of Rita and was able to identify the location as Eureka, plus several other recognizable models including Vicky Ashley and Sally Dixon.
What a fabulous naturist shot of Rita this is showing of her fabulous figure and smooth mound, perfect and thanks again to John for sharing his collection!
Well it’s time to ramp things down for a while over the Christmas break, but I thought I’d leave you with this shaven delight to enjoy! It comes from the collection of original prints from John I’ve been scanning, so decided to do a quick restore and edit so I could share it here. A beautiful shot of a slender unknown model in colour with perfect small tits and smooth mound reclining on a bed. One for the shaven lovers, including John 😉
Enjoy the Christmas break and see you all in 2019!
Merle Henry down on the beach for a spot of nude sunbathing and posing for Harrison Marks. Here we see a full-frontal of Merle showing off her perfectly smooth lower region, and censored versions of similar shots of Merle appeared in Kamera No.41 and Solo (1962). Beautiful views of the beach and Merle for all to see!
