A collection of Page 3 Sydney newspaper shots from a scrapbook plus smaller news items. In this era there was fierce rivalry between two Sydney tabloid newspapers, The Sun and The Daily Mirror. Both featured bikini girls on Page 3. ‘The Mirror’ used 6x6cm cameras which gave them an edge with quality against The Sun which had switched to 35mm almost exclusively for their photography.
Weekly magazines were PIX, Australasian Post, People. These color covers gave young models 156 opportunities per year for exposure. Women s magazines Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day were lesser opportunities but with higher circulations.
