A fantastic bit of memorabilia! 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. 🙂
The classic June Russell by Harrison Marks posing in the studio with just two towels! Thankfully, one is on her head and the other to one side, allowing us to see her fabulous figure. 🙂
An original scan of a medium format negative of Thelma by Doug Burn from the 1950s. Thelma was another lesser known Harrison Marks model that appeared for him in Kamera No.4, 5, 9 and No.11 (Cover) in 1957/58, then seems to have disappeared? It now looks like she did some other modelling in the 50s for other photographers as well.
This was sent over by Tim, a contact who has a collection of 1950s negatives by Doug Burn including Thelma, Lorraine Burnett, June Russell and other models and actresses from that period. Interestingly, the index card for Thelma also has the name Bahia Ali, so another different name. Tim is also selling his negatives over on eBay, so go take a look here. 🙂
An exquisite shot of Pamela Green as Rita Landre taken by Harrison Marks in the living room of his Gerard Street flat. This shot is also another of those rarer uncensored shots of Pamela with her shaved pubic area just on display. A wider version but censored of this shot appeared in Solo No.13 P29 (1959) which was dedicated to images of Rita Landre. As always a beautiful shot of Pam/Rita, and it always amazes me how realistic the wig looked on her, so much so for ages I thought it was real!
As some may know, GHM was a cat lover and one of his many ceramic cats can be seen in the corner of this shot.
A stunning shot of June Palmer sat on the studio floor with her legs crossed. Looking straight at the camera, June looks perfect with that silver chain pulled around her tits to highlight them. The silver chain and those silver bikini bottoms have appeared several times in the past.
I love June’s whole look in this shot, including the curls of hair and make-up 🙂
A very different view of Tina Graham for today and the model of the week. Time to get your old red/cyan 3D glasses out and enjoy Tina in full 3D glory. This is a particularly good one with Tina standing out from the bed and then the roses really coming out at you from the screen.
I must say her tits and body look pretty good in 3D too 😉
Another shot of the gorgeous Pamela Alexander taken by Paul Pantha (Terry Sparks). Taken down in Pegwell Bay, it shows Pam laying on a sandy beach showing off her fabulous naked body.
Another brilliant shot and pose of Lorraine Burnett by Russell Gay from an original print in my collection. This is the second shot of two 6 by 4 prints that I have, with the first one here. Another Classic Lorraine in the way she poses in those stockings and panties with the foil . 🙂
The second of five black and white negatives of Gerry Brown taken at Norlond Astoria Studio’s in London in May 1968. A fuller frontal shot than the first shot I posted from the set here giving us a better view of that full hairy pussy, which seems much thicker than when she posed for GHM. Saying that, Gerry seems to have switched between full on shaved to full on bush throughout her modelling career, but she always had a great curvy figure. 🙂
