You have to hand it to Sabrina.
She knew how to pose perfectly.

2 June 1966 - "Customs man told Sabrina she wasn't officially here. 'How can any man say I'm not here?' Britain's dumb blonde commented in reply."

Thanks to Jon for this pic. More info .

On the 4th July 1964 the Carnival Queen Joan Tunningley was crowned by lusciously 'pneumatic' Sabrina, who opened the event and also presented cups to the Queen’s attendants and gave a kiss to lucky page boy, Kevin Eades.

The caption reads:

"Sabrina, away from England for 4 years, shows she has lost none of her charm. She is pictured at her London Hotel soon after flying in from Los Angeles to appear next Sunday with comedian Arthur Askey in a TV show at the London Palledium (sic). It was with Arthur Askey that Sabrina became famous - without saying a word. She just walked on stage in his TV Show. Her figure spoke for her."

Thanks to 'The Guy From the Netherlands' for the pic!

ceguah said: This photo [above]is from Rekord-Magasinet, a Swedish magazine directed to (young) men, mainly devoted to sports and short stories of suspense and adventure, always holding a high moral profile. The stories were generally followed by a ”bon mot” like ”Remember - crime doesn’t pay” and the like. If I remember right, the pic was accompanied by some words about Sabrina's trip to the USA, "but now the British are happy to to have their bosom queen back home again" or something like that. Exactly which issue and what year I don't know, but it is from the early sixties.

These are not the greatest photos of our Sabby - focus and composition are not good, and they were probably binned by the photographer or editor. Nevertheless, they are part of Our Sabrina's life. - Mark

And in August of The Year of The Plague 2020, we found a slightly extended remix of the arms-akimbo shot above - good for knee and thigh fans :-)
