Jane Bowman - Home Page and Gallery Update.
Jane is one of the very earliest models in ToCo’s troupe of girls. She epitomises the house image of those early days not only in the style of the photos (photographer Russell Gaye) – very innocent and cheerful, hardly a stocking top on show (and often retouched) and with female readers − but in her professional background.
Originally she trained as a ballerina and was in the corps de ballet at Covent Garden. But she developed cartilage problems and moved to another, perhaps less rigorous, form of dance – she became a showgirl via the famous Windmill theatre (cradle of many a star, including Kenneth More) and the Pigalle. From there she branched out to modelling, at which she was a natural and enjoyed considerable success, and TV roles.
