Kamera Calendars 1965 & 1966

Two more Kamera Calendars to add to my collection arrived over the Christmas period, with the 1965 copy filling the only gap I had of the missing calendars. In that I mean I have scans of all calendars from other sources and members, plus 3 original copies I’ve purchased (1960. 1965 and 1966)

As you can see the quality of both Calendars is very good, with the only defect being a slight double print on the cover of the 1965 Calendar, as you can see two sets of Jayne Tracy’s eyes. The inside pages of each calendar are perfect, with little colour fading for 50 years old. You could hang them on the wall today and they wouldn’t look out of place and as you can see the 1965 calendar is attached to a company backing board. Both also came with their original envelopes, but those are a little worn as you can imagine, but did their job and protected the actual calendars. Another bargain win on eBay as I won both for £7.80 including postage, result!

I’ve started scanning the pages of both and will start to share them on here soon 🙂

Pamela Green – Kamera Calendar, January 1961

A republish of the 1961 Kamera calendar by each individual month rather than en-mass and starting with the stunning in red Pamela Green. Love this outfit on her and the deckchair in the background with her name on it. The prop to the right has been used several times including Kamera Backstage and as part of the glamour film and photo set ‘star Strip’ featuring June Palmer.

Dawn Grayson – Kamera Calendar 1968 Cover

Thanks to John I now have a further two complete sets of scanned Kamera calendars for both 1968 and 1969! The penultimate and last calendars produced and starring some of my favourite later models, include of course Dawn Grayson, June Palmer and Julie Collins.

We start with the cover of the 1969 calendar featuring Dawn Grayson cuddling a snowman on festive set.  This was probably part of the photo shoot that appeared in the 1967 Kamera Winter Special, where I have already publish 3 shots of Dawn on the same set.

Thanks to John W for again scanning and sending copies of these calendars, as it is always appreciated by me for the time and effort he takes to do this for the site.
