Sabrina Greetings

These pictures are postcards in the "Greetings" collection.

The original copies were found on eBay (16 Feb 03), by Sabrinaphile named Alistair. Soon after I posted them here, Dave 'Blunebutton' (obviously a steam-powered fellow Goon Fan and general life form) wrote to say:

They are a set of publicity photos taken in 1955 by Douglas Burn and Philip Gotlop. Gotlop was famous for his "figure photograpy", a euphemism for art photography that was (at the time) considered to be bordering on porn.

Yours with dolly mixtures

ceguah said: The next two B&W photos are from a pictorial in some British girlie magazine, Spick, Span, whatever. Probably late fifties judging from the text. Bought this mag together with a few more, some featuring Sabrina, in a second hand shop in the mid sixties (in Sweden).

The removed caption said:

As most of you already know, Sabrina first leapt to fame on the Arthur Askey TV programme where she played the part of Arthur Askey's Dumb Blonde. Immediately afterwards she hit the headlines and has since become one of the most sought after Pin-up beauties in this country. Her pictures have appeared everywhere in magazines and newspapers etc. She is in constant demand for the opening of bazaars and similar functions. Recently made a film called "Stock Car."

There endeth the Greetings series.

Sabrina's rear

A German postcard found on eBay in 2010 which makes one think:
"Does my bum look absolutely GIGANTIC in this?"

While not an official "Greetings" series, it's still a publicity postcard.
