Another from the set of Nancy Roberts taken in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old! Looking at the details on the box of these glass plates I now recognize the handwriting as that of Leslie L. Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine and then Girl Illustrated. A stunning shot of Nancy who seems to appear in many of Bainbridge’s early H&E magazines and several ‘naturist’ films, including the new one in my collection ‘World Without Clothes’.
Nancy Roberts on the steps of a building in the grounds of Sheplegh Court, Devon from a scan of a photographic glass plate. Another from the set of Nancy in the grounds of Sheplegh Court in 1959, when she was a mere 20 years old and taken by Leslie Bainbridge, editor of H&E (Health & Efficiency) magazine. A beautiful shot of a sun kissed Nancy laying on those steps in just a hat 🙂
Lee Southern (Sothern) cooling off in the sea on the cover of Health & Efficiency (June 1967). Nothing risqué about this cover, but Lee looks sexy and cool at the same time in her blue bikini as she takes a splash in the sea. Taken at a beach close to Sheplegh Court in Devon, which was a popular haunt of editor Leslie Bainbridge.
