What better way to end the 2019 Kamera Club Christmas Calendar than with a festive view of my all time favourite Dawn Grayson. I posted a version of this shot back in 2016 as my Christmas card for that year, but never posted the complete shot, so here we go.
The original shot appeared in the Kamera Winter Special P10 and P11 (1966), but this is from the original negative in my collection. We also have Santa (Harrison Marks) and a snowman looking on, but neither compare to a stunning Dawn in furs. Anyway I’ll end the year with this shot, as things will now wind down on the site over Christmas.
Finally, Happy Christmas and New Year to you all and see you in the next decade 🙂
I’d just like to wish all followers and members of the site a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year! I’d also like to thank all of the friends and supporters of the site that have provided feedback and images over the past year. It’s always appreciated and without your continued support the site wouldn’t be half as good as it is. I’m going away over the Christmas period, so things will slow down here, but I hope you all have a good break and I’ll see you all back here for another year of vintage goodies in 2017.
The above Christmas scene is obviously the glorious Dawn Grayson posing on Santa’s sleigh amongst the furs, but still showing off that fabulous figure. The original shot appeared in the Kamera Winter Special P10 and P11 (1966), but this is from the original negative in my collection. We also have Santa (Harrison Marks) and a snowman in the scene, but neither take away the limelight from Dawn and I wish Santa would bring me one of those on his sleigh this year!
Caroline Coon as Mary Stephan (Blonde wig) in the uncensored version of a shot originally published in the Kamera Winter Special (1966). This version, which I prefer was actually published in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 P42 (1969).
Another festive themed shot as Christmas approaches and another scan from one of my original negatives. This one features firm favourite Dawn Grayson on the festive set, including Santa! This shot was taken in 1966 for the Kamera Winter Special and a similar image of Dane pointing off into the distance appears on the cover, but she’s sat rather than stood. This image also doesn’t appear in the actual magazine or appear anywhere else, unless I’ve missed it?
Santa as I’ve mentioned before is supposedly Harrison Marks himself, but not 100% convinced, as who’s taking the photo then?
I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. I’d also like thank all of you that have supported the site and me over the last year, with feedback, comments and new content, as it’s always appreciated and what makes the site what it is and keeps me wanting to come back and do more and more.
Sorry, I copped out of the letter i for the calendar, but decided to create this years Christmas card instead. The card features one of my original images of Caroline Coon under the alias Mary Stephan posing on the Festive/Winter set, so very apt and if you look very closely in the shadow of the present you can just see a hint of bush! Most of the shots on this set went on to appear in the Kamera Winter Special (1967), but this one doesn’t, so was either unpublished or more likely appeared in a normal edition of Kamera I’ve missed!
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the Christmas break with your families and friends 🙂
