I am glad to point out that now I own an original copy of Spick and Span thanks to my fan who sent me these scans! He shipped me the original. It was a breath-taking experience to hold something that beautiful from the 1960’s.
I also couldn’t believe how real these British pin up girls looked. They had sincere smiles and regular bodies, not like the cookie-cutter girls these days with a blank gaze in the magazines.
Spick and Span was a British magazine in 1960’s of women showing off their knickers, stockings, and bras. At that time there was no pantyhose just yet, only stockings and garter belts. One of my friends from the Netherlands has sent these scanned pictures and I am so pleased to be able to share these vintage pin up photos with you.
You can click on the photos to see enlarged version to read the text.
Besides lovely garter belts and stockings, I am drawn to the fact that these women are real people with a spark in their eyes and genuine smiles. I am very grateful to get these photos from Spick and Span magazine and to be able to share them with you.
Later Gerard sent me a few copies to treasure! I keep a Spick and Span magazine that tucked into a picture frame in my bedroom and this is the first thing I see in the morning when I wake up. I love it! My favourite photo is of a girl wearing a wreath with a fun story to go along with it. Maybe I’ll scan it for you some day.
